We are entering an age were water scarcity has become a dire reality. The importance of rain water storage in this scenario cannot be stressed enough. Even Kerala, a district that receives rain 4 months of a year is facing water shortage. Even though 3000 mm of rain is received every year, most of it goes to the ocean.
We can prepare for summer by opting for various water storage methods. Using water tanks to collect rain water, will enable you to use this as potable water. This is safer and better than most water storage methods. The cost to implement this also not very high. The only maintenance required will be the occasional cleaning of the tank. Rain water is one of the purest forms of water. Storing it, you can use it for all household purposes. Any drought can be survived with this method. Protecting this valuable resource, water, is our responsibility.
