**How to find Tank capacity?**

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