A water tank is used for storing water. Water tanks are used to provide storage of water for use in many applications, drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for plants and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food preparation as well as many other uses.
Thin Retention Tank
A retention tank is used to permanently hold rainwater, which can then be re- used for hose taps, toilet use and laundry purposes. Also known as a single purpose rain tank. Dual purpose tank: Dual purpose tanks both retain and detain rainwater. These can also be found above and below ground.
Stormwater Detention Tanks are tanks that temporarily store rainwater collected from your roof and other hard surfaces on your property during a rainfall event. It then release the water at a much slower rate. The controlled release of the water into the public stormwater system is through a small diameter hole, called an orifice. These tanks can be located above or below ground.
Underground Detention Tank
A Septic Tank is an underground chamber made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic through which domestic wastewater (sewage) flows for basic treatment. Settling and anaerobic processes reduce solids and organics, but the treatment efficiency is only moderate (referred to as "primary treatment"). Septic tank systems are a type of simple onsite sewage facility (OSSF). They can be used in areas that are not connected to a sewerage system, such as rural areas. The treated liquid effluent is commonly disposed in a septic drain field, which provides further treatment.
