What You Need to Know About Water Storage Tanks

When it comes to choosing which water storage tank is best for you, do you know the specifics of what you are looking for? If not, then do not worry as we have provided a basic guide to what you should be looking for.

As with most of our products, water tanks are available in both steel and plastic – depending on your requirement, the material you choose is important. For example, if you are looking to store water for private use, you will probably be looking at our plastic tanks, whereas steel tanks are designed more for commercial use.

Drinking Water

Our primary use for water is to drink it, but not all water storage tanks are suitable for storing drinking water. Our range of potable tanks are suitable for storing drinking water, which can help to cut down on costs of running tap water.

Depending on how many people are in your building, the size of your tank is important. Simply, the more people there are the bigger the tank should be, but that does not mean you need to go over the top. If you are unsure of the size of tank you require, then Tuffa Tanks will be more than happy to offer expert advice.

Rainwater Harvesting Tanks

If you are specifically looking for water for gardening purposes, rainwater harvesting tanks are the best solution for any garden – private or commercial. Our tanks store rainwater, which will help to give your plants the nutrients that they need to help them grow.

Areas where hosepipe bans are a regular occurrence benefit most from harvesting rainwater, as this takes the strain off the local water systems and reduces the dependency on tap water. As these tanks are non-potable, the water stored is not suitable for drinking and should not be consumed.
