Water Storage Systems
Emergency Water Storage Systems - a serious option that could save your life.
Water is important for the survival of any life form and hence the saying, ‘Water is Life.’ As essential as it is, you will find that it becomes unavailable at the most inappropriate times. Emergencies that require immediate water supply can occur at any time, be it in an organization such as a school, hospital, factory and so on or even in a domestic setting. Having a tank on hand can really be a life saver in such a case. There are a variety of options that can be explored for such water storage systems.
Several engineering companies have come up with solutions for these water storage problems. They offer different types and sizes of tanks and water storage systems that are convenient and vary according to the owner’s need and budget. For the cheaper priced tanks, one can choose to go with the plastic tanks that offer convenience in placement and can also hold as much water as needed. For a more permanent solution, one can choose to have a permanent water tank installed in the compound. Again, the material used for this tank will depend on the owner’s budget.
However, there are companies that have come up with high end water storage systems that are even more convenient and reliable. A company like Interstate Products Inc. offers Water Bladders that are collapsible water containers that can be easily installed and are flexible in size ranging from 100 gallons to 150,000 gallons. The advantage with these containers is that they are portable meaning water can be transported in them to wherever it is needed.
The fact that the company offers small ranges for water storage means that they can be used for home use, as a back up plan for when the usual water supply is not available or just in case you need it for your pool or other use in the home. This company also offers an option for fire fighting companies that may need a more flexible and easy to transport tank option. The Onion Tank is such a product. This tank is frameless yet self supporting, collapsible and thus easily portable. It can store up to 14,400 gallons of water making it a very convenient tank option for such an organization.
In the case that a large organization such as a hospital which needs high end and reliable water storage systemss that can hold a larger capacity of water, they can link up with a company like MPC Containment. MPC Containment offers larger tanks that can hold up to 210,000 gallons of water. Their package includes hoses, valves and filters as well as inlets, outlets and vents ensuring that the water can easily be piped to the required places. The fact that it is collapsible also means that in the event that the organization needs to change location, the tank can be easily packed and transported to the new location without it being damaged in any way.
Whichever emergency water storage system is chosen, it is important to ensure that there is one available in case of any number of disasters that can happen at anytime in any place in the world.
