Does your new home have a wastewater storage tank? If so, you are probably unsure how it functions. To find out how wastewater storage tanks work, you must tune in to watch this video.
First things first, let’s go over what a water storage tank is. Equalization and wastewater storage tanks are a place where water is stored and used later.
It simply holds water until we need to use it, whether that be for hot water or cold water. The water in this tank is treated through a water reclamation system. This is a way for your household water to be treated so that you can reuse it again when needed. Did you know that about 56% of household wastewater flows were safely treated in 2020? This goes to show that it is an effective process that not only protects us from bacteria but also saves money and benefits the environment.
These wastewater storage tanks come in different sizes and require treatment every now and then. For an atmospheric tank, only a few drops of chlorine are needed. For bigger tanks, you might need to use a few cups of chlorine when you are undergoing the cleaning process.
