Green Applications of a Water Storage Tank

With both individuals and organizations showing an unprecedented inclination towards green building technologies, there is a resultant demand for sustainable solutions. Environment friendly water storage tanks and fiberglass manholes come under this category. These tanks can be installed underground or aboveground, depending on the space available and other specifications.

When purchasing a tank for your green building or facility, it is advisable to choose a firm that is a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). This would ensure that your tank is truly environment friendly and is manufactured according to the prevailing federal safety standards. A truly environment friendly product will have positive lasting effects on your immediate ecology. There are several applications where you can make fruitful use of a fiberglass tank that is meant for storing water or wastewater. Here is an overview of some applications:

•Rainwater harvesting: For smartly collecting rainwater and re-using it, you need tanks that are non-corrosive yet long lasting. Today, a sustainable water management solution would be incomplete without an environmentally friendly storage tank. These tanks are available in a number of storage capacities and specifications. They can be made to precisely suit your requirements.

•Stormwater collection: In the countryside, rainwater readily percolates into the ground. However, this is not the case in urban areas where water-logging is common in parking lots, highways, rooftops etc. That’s precisely why storm water collection is gaining popularity because one can easily divert this water into a tank and re-use it. If you live in an area where the rainfall leaves much to be desired, there couldn’t be a better solution than installing water storage tanks for collecting storm water. There are special tanks available in various sizes and can be easily connected to storm water drains.

•Septic applications onsite: Today, people have gone beyond depending only on municipalities for septic water treatment. Both private homes and organization can immensely benefit from the installation of onsite septic tanks. It is important to store septic waste in environmentally safe tanks so as to minimize contamination related to infiltration and ex-filtration. Tanks made from fiberglass are a much better option to the traditionally used concrete tanks that are prone to cracks and leaks. Fiberglass tanks for this purpose are available in a variety of sizes and diameter thicknesses.

In addition to these most common applications, water storage tanks are also widely used for fire protection, storage of portable water, grease interception and much more. As we have mentioned earlier, it is very important to purchase these storage tanks from a firm that is a member of genuine environmental agencies such as the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). This would ensure that you get a truly sustainable solution.
