Aquality offer a range of storage systems that can accommodate different site conditions, and these include GRP, geocellular, large diameter pipe and in-situ concrete. Our technical design team are able to provide advice on the suitably of a tank dependant on site conditions.
Water storage tanks are an essential part of any rainwater harvesting system or a component in SuDS attenuation system , for smaller systems this maybe an above ground tank, or a free standing tank located in a plant room. For larger systems this is far more likely to be a below ground tank.
Any tank designed for use as a rainwater harvesting system that also uses surface water from hard standings must be able to be inspected and maintained. The residence time in a storage tank will be longer than for an attenuation tank, this inevitably means that there will be greater settlement of fine particles that will need to be periodically removed from the tank.
