What is the right size water tank for my property?

Water tanks are now necessary for all people. Whether we are talking about a residential, commercial or industrial area doesn’t matter. We all need water daily. Think about it: your current water supplier has the power to stop your water supply anytime! But this alternative source of water, you solve this problem. In the form of a water tank, of course! You want to look at the cheapest water tanks you can find. This might sound easy. However, most of the time the people get confused while trying to select the right size water tank for their property (3000 litre water tanks are popular). There are a few things you need to consider (important things) in order to find the right size tank for your property. Keep reading to find out what! 

The first and most important thing that you have to do is calculate the amount of water you use on a daily basis. To do this, you have to consider the number of family members that live in your house and their water requirements (the water consumption for the whole family). Think about it this way: the larger the family – the bigger the water tank. Along with the number of members, you also have to calculate the number of tasks that are based on water consumption; dishwashing clothes washing, car washing, gardening, house cleaning and so on. This is the best way to settle on the right size for your water tank. The size you need also varies depending on the area of your property. If you have a large area, then you need a bigger water tank, but if you have a small property, then you need a medium-sized one. 

The next thing to keep in mind is the place that you have selected to place your water tank, because if you have less space on the roof or in the backyard, you cannot buy a huge one. Take the proper measurements of the space where you want to place your water tank, calculate the size of the tank and then plan accordingly. 

Most of the time, people use the water tank for a specific task (this also affects the size of the water tank). Therefore, if you want to use the tank for a specific task, you have to keep those tasks in mind while buying it. For example, if you want a water tank only for car washing or gardening, then you need a small-sized water tank. This, because the car only needs to be washed a few times per month, and you only need to water your plants every second day at the most. Therefore, you do not need a huge kind of water tank for these purposes. Identify the tasks for which you need a water tank and then decide on the size you need. For example, if it’s only for dishwashing or clothes washing, you might need a medium size one (or a big one if you have a big family). It all depends on your preference and water-need. Along with the size of your water tank, you also have to consider some other things like material, colour, and quality of your water tank.  Once you have calculated the size of your water tank, the next thing to decide is what material and colour that are suitable for the water tank. There are many different materials used to make water tanks; plastic, polypropylene, polyethylene, and fibreglass, concrete, stone and steel. However, polyethylene water tanks are one of the most popular and useful water tanks due to their reliability. Along with this, the water tanks come in a variety of colours. Here, it is wise to use colours that are less heat absorbing, like blue and green (because they prevent the water from heating). So there you go! That’s how you can buy the right type of water tank for your property. I hope this article was helpful. Good luck with your shopping!
