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 Guinea Bissau 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.
Water tanks are large containers that store water. This is great for people who need water for a variety of reasons and might live far away from a store. There are many uses for water tanks, some that you may or may not know about.
Water tanks are kept outside, underground or above ground in your yard. Where you put them is related to where the pipes lay to transfer the water from the tank to your home or business. When you choose to purchase a water tank, there are many uses you should be aware of so you can better understand why you might need a water tank to run your home efficiently.
The Main uses of water storage tanks include:
In the rural areas of Guinea Bissau, there are four main ways of accessing water: unprotected wells, protected wells, boreholes and rivers, from which 4 per cent of the population get their water. Water access is not a big problem during the rainy season, but it becomes more difficult when high temperatures begin to dry out the reserves. In most cases, the population is not able to keep water safe from the source to final consumption and With 80 percent of the Guinea Bissau capital’s water contaminated with harmful bacteria, residents are used to outbreaks of cholera and other deadly diarrhea diseases.
“These days we hardly ever get water during the day, to wash we have to get water from a well, and to drink it is hard to find any clean water at all.” ” said a resident.
