We however want to take a look at overhead tank stand project critically. Because of poor construction or lack of employing an engineer to supervise or handle an overhead tank stand erection as many people considers it a minor project based on this ignorance tank stands has collapsed countless times and have destroyed lives and properties too.

With 2trips of sand we can back fill and have some left over in a well of 3ft by 32ft since 8 headpans of sand can cover depth of 1ft by 3ft circumference.

The partitioning is according to the flat it will service but each will bear 2000litter load by 4 of them at 34ft tall the shower will be painful I must say.

It has a total of 4 tanks fully separate to service the four flats independently and conveniently as well.

The pipes are specifically piped thus:

1) 2 inches for external water supply channel (water tankers etc)

2) 1inch pipe water supply channel from newly built bore hole

3). 1inch Discharge pipe that supplies to the apartments with independent control system tagged to each flat number to avoid qurrel among neighbors grin


Each flat has 3pipes multiple by 4 Flats that's why it's many but is for convenience anyways. Thanks

Dubemcapital1, my tank base has been done. I am looking at doing galvanized pipe, the welder has just informed me that we will have to add attachment and connected to the building.

My question is what is the best possible way to do that, because this was not planned for. Any idea?

That's not the best, is he not convinced the stand is strong enough to bear the load or not balanced? Why did he want to hook up a support on the building?

He said the screw the builder use can not withstand the proposed load.
