Water always flows from a higher place to a lower place. The choice of the location of the water tank is made using this simple physics principle. That is the reason why most people place water reservoirs on top of their houses or water towers.
The actual location of the water reservoir does not always have to be in a high place. Currently there are also types of water tanks that are installed buried. You can find underground tank variants in Mpoin tank and Penguin tank brands.
The existence of buried tanks did not dampen the popularity of water towers. In fact, on the contrary, more and more homeowners are choosing to place a water reserve at the highest position of their residence. It’s not because they don’t have land, but the position of the high water reservoir provides many advantages.
Curious what the benefits are? Here are some reasons why the location of the water tank is always in a high place.
The height of the water reservoir greatly affects the swift flow of water. The higher the distance between the water tank and the tap below, the greater the resulting water pressure. The level of hardness of the water is of course beneficial for some activities that require a large flow of water, such as washing a car or filling a bathtub.
For standard household water usage, the recommended tower height is 2-4 meters. Meanwhile, for even greater water needs, it requires a height of up to 7 meters or more.
In order for the water discharge to be even steeper, the location of the water tandor cannot be as long as it is high. Water towers that are too high require pumping machines and large pipe sections. The same thing applies vice versa, the greater the water holding capacity, the greater the required cross-sectional area of the network pipe.
Therefore, the height of the water tank should be made according to the size of the tank. Such large capacity tanks generally reach more than 10,000 liters and are very suitable for installation in large buildings or houses with large water needs.
Placing a water tank on top of the house is believed to reduce the electricity consumption of the water pump. With it, the pump will only turn on when it sucks water from underground up to the tank. The rest of the water will flow to the taps by using gravity. Another advantage, water still comes out of the faucet even though the house’s electricity is off.
Choosing the roof of the house as the location of the water reservoir turns out to be quite profitable, right? However, for those of you who have excess land at home, choosing a type of underground water reservoir can still be an alternative.
