What size water tank do I need?
Water tank size is important and you should take into account how much space you have for installation. Water tanks come in different capacities, ranging from a few hundred litres to a few thousand litres. The bigger the water tank’s capacity, the more space it will take in your home. Given that there is enough room in your home, you can decide on a bigger size water tank without worrying. Choose the most convenient spot for the installation of the water tank.
However, if you have limited space for a water tank, it makes more sense to choose a smaller water tank. You may also want to consider a concealed tank, such as a bladder tank, which can go under your deck or even beneath your house. Underground water tanks are also available. You can use the rainfall and roof area catchment calculator to determine which size rainwater tank suits you the best.
Calculating what size tank you need
Determining exactly how much water you want to flow into your tank is an important first step. This means you need to take into consideration the size of the catchment surface, which is your roof. Keep in mind that the bigger your roof is, the more water will be collected in the tank.
Make sure you calculate an estimate for how much rain you get in your area. A formula exists for calculating the size of your tank. You should determine the size by multiplying the area of your roof by the average rainfall in your region. This value represents the maximum measurement of water that you can expect to capture.
Next, calculate how many days you expect it not to rain, and multiply that figure by your average daily amount of water usage. This will help ensure you have enough water long before any dry spell. A prime example is if you have a dry spell lasting for two months or 60 days, and you use 500 litres of water each day. For this example, you would need 30,000 litres of water. On the other hand, someone who uses only 100 litres of water each day would only need a tank with a capacity of 6,000 litres.
