FRP Water Sump or RCC for Rain water harvesting

Postby Visualizer » September 15th, 2018, 3:25 pm

Hi,

My house is in planning stage , I have specifically asked for 15000 to 20000 liter capacity rain water harvesting sump.
For this my architect suggests to go for FRP Sump tank and the cost per liter will be same as RCC. As per him these kind of
FRP tanks are commonly used in petrol pumps for fuel storage and are quite good

Need to gather opinions on pro and cons of FRP vs RCC Sump tank.

Also in case I go for readymade tank is it better to go for single big tank ( 15K or 20K liters) or get 2 /3 smaller 5K liter sumps ?

If you choose FRP, be mindful of the base. It has to have a smooth base and no protrusions or sharp objects. The pressure on the tank would be enormous and a small sharp object will cause leakage and crack. Also keep in mind that when cleaning the sump tank, the labourers will have to be gentle and not damage.

Instead of one tank I would recommend 3 tanks each 10k which would be easy for installation and not need to replace if damaged. Since the cost are same I would recommend RCC .
