Drought and water storage tanks

Share This Post

Cloudless skies, low rainfall and high temperatures; these are words that can give every farmer nightmares especially if the proper measures to deal with these types of problems are not put in place.  The drought has a devastating effect, not just on the economy but also on the everyday lives of the person on the street. Water is what gives each of us life, without it food will quickly become depleted. Water storage tanks can be a useful solution during times of drought.

Conserving water by practising rain harvesting

Water tanks – Commercial Use

Rain Harvesting with Rainbow Reservoirs, who are the top suppliers of water tanks, is possibly one of the best ways to conserve water.  Rainwater harvesting is the process whereby rainwater is collected for reuse.  The rain can be collected from rivers or roofs, and then directed into a water tank or reservoir.  This process can be another water supply source during times of water restrictions and in some African countries, it can even be the main water supply.   This water can be reused for livestock, or for agricultural use.  Harvesting rainwater can, if it is properly treated, be used for domestic purposes or as drinking water as this water has no salinity or other salts.  This can ensure that there is always a supply of water available during drought but it will rely on there always being plenty of rain water available to be collected.

Collecting rain water in these water storage tanks will have numerous advantages such as:
