Topic: Water Tank Quality

Hi All,

I am building my two story home. I want to install the water tank at the top. Can you please suggest me, what capacity it will be fine for 2 story building (G+1). I am planning for 1.5KL water tank.

Also, what quality of Plastic Water tank will be good. As in market every one talking about the Water tank Layers. So which is better 2-Layer or 3-Layer water tank and which colour is preferable (Black or White) to prevent the Algae( Green water Jelly) in the water tank.

I am living in Gurgaon and the soil water here is very salty. Please give me your valuable suggestions, so that I will go ahead with the water tank installation.

Post subject: re: hi

You are looking for water tank quality first of all please note this that water tank material must be marked food grade . 3 layer tank is better  and tank must be white from inside . outer is black or white it does'nt matter . water in white tank become less warmer than in black tanks mostly in summers.

now if water is salty tanks doesnt get effected  the problem will occur with the pipe lines it should be upvc pipes because salty water spoils the  GI pipes within 4 to 5 years.  you can use larger ro waterpurifiers to prevent your GI pipelines.

thanks

In my previous  post   by mistake i told you to use UPVC pipes instead of GI pipes .  It should be  PPRC  pipes.

Post subject: What about the Algae ( the green water jelly)

Hi Pankaj,

THanks for your valuable advice. But I still have some concerns, as you told that we must use the White coloured Water tank. I have heard that the white water tanks develop the Algae very quickly as compared to Black ones.

On the other hand the water in Black  water tanks gets warmer quickly as compared to White ones. So what would you suggest.

Also what is the difference between the 2 or 3 layer water tanks, is it the coating that matters or there are 2-3 sheets of plastics are joined to form a water tank. Recently I have seen the water tank stating a 4-layer one and offering me a price of Rs 4.50/ Litre.

Please give me your views on the same.

ugh, looks like you will need to do some estimate usage calculations to settle for a certain capacity tank. Perhaps it's wise to choose one on the larger side just to be sure...
