Positioning of Water Tanks.

One of the more common problems of rainwater tanks is their apparent obtrusiveness.  The size of the typical tank makes it impractical for them to be place close to the home. The typical perception despite their usefulness is that they can be ugly.
The beauty of the Water Rhapsody rainwater harvesting system is that water tank no longer needs to be positioned where they have traditionally been placed, under the eve of the roof.  Water tanks may now be “hidden” anywhere on a property as long as the height of the Water Rhapsody Rain Runner (filter) is higher than the top of the rainwater tank.

Underground water tanks may also be used for the retention of Rainwater, however conventional rain water ranks are not designed to be installed underground and backfilled with soil. If this were to be done they will collapse or they may pop out of the ground if empty. Special underground tanks are built, but are very expensive.  A special room may be built with a concrete floor and walls, all of which puts underground water tanks out of the questing for most people.

How quickly will the tank pay for itself?

We’ve managed to make your rainwater harvesting system amortise (paying off the capital investment) within a short period. This is best done with the Water Rhapsody Grand Opus that allows your water tank to fill and then empty as it rains. The frequency at which the water tanks fill and then empty impact the speed of amortisation.

What size water tank do I need?

A factor to consider when selecting your water storage tank capacity is how frequently your rainwater harvesting system will draw down the water tank level. A water tank the regularly overfills indicated that there is either too little storage or that their is too little water use. While a water tank that never fills means that there is too much storage capacity.

Your Water Rhapsody Dealer is able to calculate what size storage capacity would best suit your need. The calculation takes into account the type of roof covering (steel or tiles), the roof area, and the number of people drawing from the water supply.
