Title: Installing underground water tanks residentially
Post by: CuriousGeorge on December 03, 2015, 03:58:01 PM
Is it possible to buy huge underwater tanks and have these installed on your land? If you have a large garden for example, it could be plausible to dig it up, install a tank the size of a cargo container, put the plumbing in and re-bury it. Maintenance may be an issue down the line, but otherthan that you've got a fantastic source of multi-purpose water (although I wouldn't drink it!)

Does anyone know if equipment like this is sold for the residential market? And would you need some kind of planning permission?

Seems very impractical, and I can imagine the planning permission would be a nightmare at best. If you have massive grounds you could probably do it yourself, but certainly not in a normal residential area. I imagine preppers would be clued up on this if you know any.

I think it all comes down to land. If you have acres of land, and plan to use a lot of water gardening, then I absolutely think this is a good course of action. If you have a large private estate, I'm not actually sure planning permission would be necessary, and if it is I don't think it would be too difficult to achieve.

Petroleum products are used to produce a huge number of products for various purposes. Simultaneously with tangible benefits, they carry a serious danger due to light ignition. Therefore, it is very important to use reliable tanks for storage. They allow you to accumulate petroleum products in the right amount and not expose personnel and the environment to the risk of fire or pollution. With proper operation and ensuring proper conditions of storage, oil reservoirs guarantee absolute protection against industrial emergencies associated with their spill.
