Water storage. 

Water is the second most important resource for all life both animals and plants in the world after the air. Water is essential for the survival of all life and it is estimated a human or animal would only survive for 3 days without water unlike 21 days without food. It is thus crucial that we have safe water on demand. With erratic rainfall patterns and falling river levels, it is important that we store water when it rains for use when the dry season is upon us.  The problem is even worse in urban areas with the unreliable piped water supply by the authorities. In urban areas, we have no rivers where we can get safe water for use. If you have a borehole you cannot be pumping water every time you need to use it.

For this reason, you need to have a water storage tank to enable you to have water on demand.

 Factors when picking a 5,000 liter plastic water tank.  


Brands are produced by different companies and no two brands will have the same quality. However, all tanks/storage solutions sold in Kenya are compliant with the minimum requirements set by the authorities in the country. Older brand names have built a name that signifies quality and trustworthiness and most people opt for well-known names. However, due to technological advancements, new brands are just as good as the tanks from traditional brands.
