Water is a vital resource for domestic, residential, commercial, rural, and industrial uses. With the unreliable water supply in Uganda, you need a water tank to store your water to make it available at your convenience.

These are the types of water tanks with their prices.

Plastic water tanks.


These are the commonest water tanks in Uganda. They are a product of UV-stabilized polyethylene/ plastic, which doesn’t break under harsh outdoor conditions.

Plastic water tanks mainly store drinking and rainwater. They also act as water reserves for industrial and fire prevention purposes.

1. It creates more water pressure.

The elevated position of a water storage tank allows it to deliver water with more force. It is simple science: water flows towards gravitational force, so the greater the height, the greater the pressure. According to numerous studies, if a unit is placed more than a hundred feet above the ground, there is a significant increase of around .43 pound per square inch per foot.

2. It eliminates the expense and installation of a pump.

Usually, a water pump is not necessary for the average household that utilizes a stainless steel water storage tank for human consumption. If the unit is installed at height with a sufficient distance above the house’s plumbing, it may create sufficient pressure. Moreover, for a water tank that only serves the garden and other external use, elevating the unit will probably provide decent pressure. Simply put, not relying on a pump will save you a hefty amount of money.

3. It prevents contamination.

Tanks are also mounted in elevated spot for practical reasons. Doing so prevents extreme sediments and other foreign objects from coming in. You must know that the longer sediment remains in a water tank, the greater the risk for contamination and pathogenic growth.

4. It provides convenient access for repairs.

Any fixture that is installed above ground permits much easier access for routine maintenance. If leaks should occur they will be relatively easy to spot and to repair. This is also why most tank providers, like Firs tank Uganda,  ladder that comes with the unit.

It is not mandatory to keep your water storage tanks at the top level of your house or building. You can even install them on the ground level. But doing so will most likely require an external aid to make water flow through the pipelines. So take it from the experts like the guys . : elevating your water tank is always a good decision.

They are more costly, especially the larger tank sizes.

It is worth noting that all the water tank types below fall in these two categories;

Field erected water tanks.

shell namuwongo_Page_1_Image_0001 Image_001 (1)

Field erected water tanks can either be stainless steel or concrete. What differentiates them from the shop-built water tanks is that they are too large to be put together in a shop. So they are transported to the project site in parts or pieces where they are welded together or put together.

Every field erected water tank is designed based on its purpose, specifications of its function, where it will sit, the pressure on it, and many other considerations.

Why field erected water tanks are the best water tanks

It is worth noting that field-erected tanks are the most suitable water tanks for large-scale use regarding size, material, and durability.

If there’s a water tank that can’t go wrong, it’s the field-erected tanks. For high-quality, field erected water tanks with a capacity of up to 500,000 gallons, contract Orlandoh engineering for high-quality field erected tanks. Their field personnel uses innovative approaches and can handle any task, whether it’s installation inside an existing structure or one that is too big to ship.

NB: The price of your water tank is only part of the puzzle. It would be best to consider the cost of complementary equipment like filters, screens, and so on to ensure that you get the best quality water in your tank. There’s also the cost of transportation and installation.

So, be careful in your water tank buying process. Make a list of all your expenses and come up with the best choice for you.
