Storing water underground makes sense on every level

As the world gets ever smaller, fuelled by technology advancements, population growth, and regulatory restrictions,  space is increasingly being sold at a premium. While most of us continue to take it for granted, there can be few more precious (albeit highly space consuming) substances on earth than water. These two facts can often leave commercial businesses, households, farms and other organisations with a storage quandary.

The solution is almost always a professionally installed, well designed, fit for purpose underground water storage tank. Of course, making the decision to look into such a solution is one thing – making the right decision is quite another challenge. You must first weigh up the pros, the cons, the cost and the capabilities of the supplier.

Understanding underground water storage tank installations…

There is more at stake, when considering underwater storage than simply space. There are all of the safety aspects involved, such as protection from animals, contamination, vandalism, or any number of accidental scenarios. The aesthetics of underwater storage is also quite appealing in many situations.

Commercial Water Storage Tank Installations

One of the earliest innovations that propelled mankind into the realms of modern civilisation was his ability to capture and store water. And in the same way that the wheel is still essentially the same basic design as it was back then, so is the basic function of the water storage tank. Perhaps the biggest difference in the evolution of this most fundamental of requirements is the materials used, the experience and expertise of those fitting it, and the cost of the installation. Most of these variables are dependent on the specific requirements of those needing a secure supply of water and its intended use.

Water is essential to life. It is the sign that biologists and cosmologists look out for when searching for life – it is one of the first treatments to be checked and supplied in any medical emergency – it is a vital ingredient of every living creature on our planet – in its purest form it is one of the most powerful cleaning agents known to man – and it is beautiful as it sparkles in the sunlight on a summer morning. We need water and in many scenarios we depend on it being easily accessible, close at hand and ready to be used at a moment’s notice.

That is why water tanks are so important and why selecting the right one for your business is such a critical decision. There are a huge variety to choose from and a number of variations in how each one can be installed or used. That means a decision has to be made and, as with anything which affects the wellbeing and health of your business, you would be wise to take expert advice before deciding.

Some of the plastic variations that are available include: vertical, horizontal, static, rainwater and liquid fertiliser. In the galvanised steel range there are corrugated or specialist application versions – and then there are the underground GRP cylindrical or polyethylene water tanks and even an above ground GRP one-piece version. Clearly there is a question to be asked here first. What do you need your tank to do for you?

Some of the more common commercial water tank applications are for: potable water, rainwater harvesting, fire protection water, recycled water, grey and waste water. Other requirements might also include tanks for storing leachate (from landfill) and liquid fertiliser.
