Water storage tanks, whether above or below ground form a fundamental part of a rainwater harvesting system. The British Standard BS 8515:2009+A1:2013 Rainwater harvesting systems code of practice defines the minimum standards for the manufacture, installation and maintenance of rainwater storage tanks and systems. The Code of Practice was set-up to give clear guidance of what the minimum accepted standards that rainwater harvesting companies have to meet. Whether for residential, commercial or industrial purposes harvesting gallons of water that falls on catchment surfaces offers three advantages.

Water storage tanks are used in many different types of industries such as agricultural, fish-farming, fire-fighting and fire protection, sports turf irrigation, mining and construction. Water storage tanks also play an important role in rainwater harvesting. Above ground or ground level tanks are the most common forms of water storage and the most economical to fabricate, erect and maintain. A roof to the steel water storage tank stops debris falling in and can also assist in adding a more appealing look to the tank which may otherwise be considered to have a negative environmental impact.

The growth of the Agricultural and Horticulture industry in the UK is dependent on a direct access to water. The primary production of food has a knock on effect on the country’s food processing capacity, jobs and local economics. Crops need clean water and livestock need drinking water combined with the growing competition for mains water supply. Reservoirs and water storage tanks are an option presented to the agricultural industry to use non-mains supply.

Water storage tanks vary in size and the material they are constructed from plastic as is common for domestic rainwater harvesting, to concrete and galvanised steel tanks as used in irrigation, industrial and fire-protection. Tanks can be above or below the ground according to preference. Water storage tanks built above the ground are less costly because the is no digging or planning permission required. Above ground storage tanks will need a roof installed to protect against debris of all types falling into the tank.

Have you ever marvelled at the greens of a well maintained golf club and wandered how they they keep them looking so lush no matter what the weather? In short it is all about the right mix and concentration of nutrients plus water fed into the ground. The flawless image, however does come with a price tag. Water is becoming more and more expensive leaving golf courses with no other alternative than to invest in water storage tanks or reservoirs to harvest either grey water or rainwater.

Galvanised storage tanks offer an economical, reliable and low maintenance means of water storage. Galvanised tanks are typically used for potable water storage, fire-protection industry water storage and water for irrigation purposes. When sealed with a geotextile protective membrane and a flexible rubber tank liner, they are guaranteed to store water safely.

Tank liners form an integral role in rainwater harvesting and water storage. Golf Clubs are notorious for high water consumption used to maintain the fairways in the lush, manicured and pristine condition golfers expect. Russetts Developments Ltd (RDL) agreed to sponsor the TGB Junior Golf tour in support of local sport and to highlight the cost effective advantages of flexible rubber tank liners for the containment of harvested rain water.

When people think of ways to fight fire, the words “water storage tanks and tank liners” rarely cross their lips. However, those who are serious about the hazards fire presents know that a robust, reliable tank whose internal surfaces are protected by a high-quality tank liner can mean the difference between success and failure when it comes to coping with runaway fires.

There are many types of water storage facilities for fire protection. Constructed types include elevated, ground-level or below the ground metal or rubberised storage tanks. Natural storage facilities include ponds, lakes and reservoirs. To be effective in water containment, water storage facilities need to be managed and maintained to regulation standards to guarantee supply in the event of a fire.

Despite the high rainfall we have had this year there are threats of rising water bills and water becoming scarcer in the future or periods of drought all of which are due to climate changes. We therefore need to consider water conservation seriously and be well prepared for such possibilities. In addition the Environmental Agency is keen that steps be put in place to reduce the need for clean water or mains water supplies. An industry that has shown steps to conserving water is Horticulture. Lake liners used in reservoir construction and water storage tanks have enabled the successful collection and storage of rainwater.

Water tanks can be found on residential, commercial or industrial properties. They are used for many different types of applications, though fundamentally their sole purpose is for storing water. Corrugated types are lined with a tank liner to keep them water tight and to preserve the tank long-term. They are installed to supply water for main uses mostly with the aim to reduce mains supply usage and as a contingency during times of drought.

The refurbishment of existing storage tanks is a financially viable option versus having to replace a tank. A well maintained tank is one which is examined annually to comply with regulations governing water storage.

Russetts Developments are leaders in the supply of products such as rubber tank liners and galvanised storage tanks, which are used in important environmental projects to conserve water, but also to save on the increasing costs of mains water supply and to safe-guard against drought conditions.

Have you ever marvelled at the sheer beauty of a golf course and wondered how the turf is kept so green no matter what the current weather conditions?

Water is the most important ingredient for a perfect golf and putting green. And it is this that has also caused much controversial publicity recently. However, many golf courses are making use of environmentally friendly approaches to managing their greens.

Above and below the ground-level water-storage tanks are becoming an important feature of many communities for the effective distribution of water. However, despite the huge benefit of the storage tanks, they can become a liability if not maintained. Steel tanks that are not properly lined may develop leaks as a result of the onset of corrosion.

The first week of June 2012 and there have been reports from many parts of the England of flood warnings and places which have received a months rainfall in a 24 hour period. The temperatures are also below average and there are reports that hose-pipe bans are to be lifted. Given all this news, what is the relevance of water storage tanks and rain-water harvesting in the UK?

Water means life and healthy water is needed in all aspects of our lives, both commercial and domestic. Water Management Systems are used extensively in industries such as horticulture, maintenance of sports grounds and fish keeping to ensure adequate, healthy supplies of water. As part of this management system water is collected and stored in galvanised or aluminium storage tanks, which are effectively lined to keep them water tight and reduce the effects of evaporation as much as possible. Materials such as Butyl and EPDM rubber liner materials have proven highly effective tank liners. Here are some of the reasons why:
