Plus, here are some helpful roof collection and water tank tips from Bermuda's Ministry of Works and Engineering:
  • Keep the roof clean and painted
  • Before cleaning, block the drain pipes so that nothing enters the tank
  • Check your tank levels regularly, at least once a month
  • Clean your tank at least once every five years
  • Disinfect water – 1/4 cup of household bleach to every 1000 gallons of water. Use formula: tank length x tank width x tank depth x 6.25 = tank capacity in gallons
  • Trim overhanging trees to prevent leaves from entering your tank
  • Consider using a qualified contractor to clean your tank
  • When purchasing water, remember only buy enough to take your tank to about half, always leave enough space for rainwater collection
