How To Find Tank Capacity?

How to find Tank capacity?

  1. To determine capacity of tank, first you need to have length, width and depth of your sump/tank in feet
  2. Multiply length, width and depth of your tank to find out cubic area of your tank/sump.
  3. 1 feet cube area(1′ length * 1′ width * 1′ height) will store upto 28 ltrs of water.
  4. So multiply your sump cubic area with 28 and you will get your sump/tank water storage capacity in liters
  5. Above formula can be applied only if shape your tank is in rectangle or square.
  6. If there are specific shapes then find out total area in cubic feet,  multiply with 28 and you will get exact number of liters
  7. Since water pressure will be more on the edges of the tank, avoid constructing sump/tank corners with 90 degrees like room walls.
  8. When you are constructing tank,  edges should be in a curved shape to divert that water pressure to a larger area. This will have significant effect in the long run.
  9. While building tank, Manson will use iron mesh during plastering to avoid cracks.
  10.  Plastering of tank  needs to be completed at one stretch to avoid cracks.
  11. Avoid using low quality brick for sumps and tanks.
  12. Keep sump door always towards street side. so that tankers can pour water easily
  13. Keep 3″ pipe connection to the sump from outside. So that water tankers can directly pour water from outside
