Storage products can be used in many areas today, and one of these areas is our homes. Some storage products may be desired to be positioned on the roof. If you want to connect a water tank to the roof, first you need to choose a safe place. The tank should be properly supported and designed to be able to carry sufficient weight according to the structure of the roof. In addition, you should obtain all the materials (screws, plates, gaskets, etc.) and equipment (drill, screwdriver, etc.) necessary to connect the tank to the roof.
You can follow the steps below to mount the tank on the roof:
• Place the tank where you want it and support it properly according to the structure of the roof.
• Place a wooden or metal plate under the tank and screw it to the roof. This will distribute the weight of the tank to the roof and make it more securely mounted.
• Place a wooden or metal plate on top of the tank and screw it to the roof. This will cover the top of the tank and make it waterproof.
• Attach the inlet and outlet pipes to the tank and connect them to the necessary locations. The inlet pipe will be used to fill the tank with water, and the outlet pipe will send the water into your home.
• Check all connections and tighten or re-tighten them if necessary.
By following these steps, you will successfully complete the process of connecting the purchased tank to the roof. However, you should be careful and take safety precautions while doing this. If you are unsure or do not know how to do this, please seek professional help.
What are the Most Suitable Storage Products for the Roof?
The most suitable storage products for the roof should be selected according to the structure of the roof. In addition, it is important for the materials used for storage to be resistant to weather conditions and extreme temperatures. For example, plastic storage products are more resistant to weather conditions and can be used for a longer period. Storage products are produced from plastic, polyester, and stainless steel. Moreover, they can be produced in many different designs. These tanks have both advantages over each other and similar features. Below are some of the most suitable storage products for the roof:
Horizontal Water Tanks
Horizontal storage products are a type of tank that is placed horizontally. These types of tanks can be mounted on the roof of houses or placed inside the house. Horizontal tanks allow water to be stored in an environment where it does not move, thus preserving the quality of the water. These tanks can be placed inside the house and are not affected by external factors. They can also be mounted on the roof, taking up less space. Indeed, they are widely used in areas such as yachts and caravans, as they take up less space.
Vertical Water Tanks
Vertical storage products are tanks that are placed vertically. These types of tanks can be mounted on the roof of houses or placed inside the house. Vertical tanks can have larger capacities, such as 1-ton water tanks, and therefore need to be filled less frequently. In addition, they are widely used in industrial applications. Since they are vertical, they will be visible on the roof of the house.
Silo storages are storage products with a cone design. They are produced using polyethylene. As they have a cone design, they have legs, and the storage compartment is elevated. This keeps pests away. Generally, they can be used for storing grains. Additionally, their conical structure allows for complete emptying of the stored content. Silo storages are high capacity and high design storage facilities generally used in agriculture and livestock sectors. Silo storages are used to store various grains (wheat, corn, oats, etc.), liquid oils, feeds, and other substances. They have high capacity and can store large amounts of products. Silo storages are resistant to weather conditions and extreme temperatures, therefore reducing the risk of spoilage and allowing for longer storage of products.
Underground Water Tanks
These tanks are underground storages. These types of storage are used to collect and store water from underground sources. Underground storage is particularly used in regions with water scarcity, and in regions where water resources are not sufficiently managed leading to water scarcity. They can also be used as septic tanks. They are not suitable for placement on roofs. However, since they are underground, they are not visible from the outside. Valuable items can also be stored in these types of storages. It is difficult to steal anything from these storages.
The most suitable product depends on the roof structure and intended use. Therefore, evaluation is required when selecting the most suitable product for roof storage.
