When it comes to water storage, there are two categories: large storage containers and small storage containers.
Large storage containers can be used for large volumes of water (up to 1.3 million gallons per day), while small storage tanks can store up to 50,000 gallons per month.
Large and small water storage containers will not mix well, and if you do use them, make sure to clean them regularly, says Susan McNeill, water storage consultant with The McNeill Water Consulting Group.
“It’s important to keep the water out of the water tank or container.
You can easily leave the container on the floor for 10 to 15 minutes and then clean it up.
If the water is in the container, then you have to dispose of the container,” McNeill says.
The storage tank can have a filter, air compressor, and/or air compressor housing, which all must be properly sanitized and disinfected before use.
A larger container is typically easier to store than a smaller container.
This is because the larger container has a bigger surface area to work with, McNeill adds.
The larger container also has more room to work on the filter and the air compressor.
A common mistake that water owners make is to not sanitize the container after it’s been used.
This can lead to bacterial growth in the water, which can lead the container to spoil, she says.
“Once the water level in the tank is too low, you’ll have to use the bigger container.
If you can, clean the water from the inside out.
Use a mild soap and water that’s in a good sanitizing solution,” McNeil says.
“This will remove bacteria and allow the water to stay in the system.”
The same rule applies to containers of all sizes, including the largest ones, McNeil adds.
The most important thing to remember when buying a water storage tank is to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the proper equipment, McNeill says.
