Space is an important factor to be considered while installing water tanks at homes. underground tank entails more room for installation as compared to the upper ones. The pros of these tanks are that they don’t become a hindrance in your way as they are installed under the ground. And you can save your extra space which has to be provided if installed on the roof. But a big loss of these tanks is that they are expensive due to the extraction of water by a pump. Obviously, underdeck tanks will require a pump to get the water out of it. But this expense can be avoided in the ground tanks. Such tanks are hard to handle sometimes as it becomes really problematic to detect the problems and issues faced in underground product. But at the same time, it is free from weather and climatic changes and does not deteriorate fast.
Heavy rains and climatic changes can destroy the tanks installed above the ground. Or in extreme hot climate, they can catch fire as well which becomes very complicated to handle. Underground ones have a major issue of getting tainted and polluted as you cannot check the water again and again. The earth’s surface has so many insects, pollutants, dirty soil and pesticides etc. that it can pollute the whole water. Underground ones require digging and mining every time. So, you can go for the tanks which can be installed easily above the ground so as to avoid such issues of contamination of water.
