Water is used daily for so many activities: washing dishes and pots, personal hygiene, watering vegetable gardens and lawns, etc.

Generally, home taps that distribute drinking water are used to do this, although potability is not necessary in these cases.

To reduce costs and preserve groundwater, rainwater collection containers can be used.

Underground rainwater collection tanks are nothing more than underground reservoirs. They can be made from structured, smooth or polyethylene spiral piping. This type of rainwater container is closed at both ends with 20 mm thick polyethylene sheets with internal reinforcements to ensure the system’s watertightness.

Rainwater collected from roofs is then channelled into the gutters and, instead of dispersion into the ground, can be stored inside the tank. Rainwater recovery tanks are in fact equipped with inlet-outlet couplings and possible hatches made of smooth and/or corrugated pipe to allow inspection inside the tank or the insertion of pumps to drain the water needed for daily activities.

Rainwater recovery tanks must be placed on a flat, firm surface suitable for the weight to be supported. The main advantage of rainwater collection tanks is that they are modular and can be adapted to specific needs: depending on the area available, even very long tanks can be connected in series or in parallel to achieve the required volumes.
