What is Water storage?
Water Storage is a broad term referring to the storage of both potable (safe to drink, drinkable) and non potable (not fit for consumption) water.
Many African countries face water shortages due to drought or a lack of clean, available water. Water Reservoirs can be used to keep communities in Malawi hydrated by rain or grey water storage.
Private homes, small/large businesses, factories and warehouses in particular can enjoy the many benefits of saving water such as cost reduction and in an emergency situation, fire suppression.
With climate change, unpredictable weather patterns and escalating utility costs mean finding water storage solutions are essential.
The Main uses of water storage tanks include:
Official estimates claim roughly 2.4 million people living in rural Malawi are without access to a safe water source, but the actual number may be twice as high – largely due to increasingly non-functional water points and a rapidly growing population.
The fact that nearly 60% of Malawians are subsistence farmers, and a further 20% are small-scale farmers increases their vulnerability to the lack of access to safe water.
While water sources are fairly numerous in Malawi, much of the population lives without access to a safe and protected water source. 69% of the population lack access to treated, sanitary drinking water and nearly half (47.7%) of rural populations have to travel 30 minutes or more to obtain their drinking water.
African Tank Systems provide portable water storage solutions which are ideal for areas in Malawi with known water shortages. Emergency water storage, such as rain water collection (Rainwater tanks / Rain Water Harvesting), can be used for:
In Rural areas or small farming communities, rain water helps break down compost and to keep livestock and harvests hydrated. Rain water is suitable to rinse fruits and vegetables for consumption straight from a garden or plantation.
African Tank water storage systems are an easy, cost effective way to save water at a fraction of the price. This is an affordable, warranty protected solution for either long or short term water storage.
