Why Do You Need A Domestic Water Storage Tank?

Due to the interruptions in the municipal water supply that can occur, having a reliable water source for your everyday needs is important for households. A municipal water supply can be disrupted due to maintenance or repairs to the pipe systems. Homes in isolated parts of Ireland need a domestic water storage. This enables homeowners to have access to potable water at all times.

Tricel's Range of Domestic Water Tanks

Tricel has been a specialist manufacturer and supplier of GRP Water Storage Solutions for 50 years and is the go-to brand for domestic water storage in Ireland. We will discuss the two main domestic water tanks for sale from Tricel and the advantages of each option. 

  • One Piece Tanks

Our range of one piece tanks is the most sought-after option for domestic water storage tanks as they offer an economical alternative to water storage. They are available in various sizes suited to every type of home and the number of people depending on the water supply. Tricel manufactures and supplies one piece tanks ranging from 45 litres to 6,000 litres.

One piece tanks are made from GRP, a durable material with superior strength. This makes Tricel the right choice for customers looking for a long-term domestic water storage tank. Our one piece tanks have different uses, and they meet different local and international standards to hold potable water required for domestic applications.

  • Sectional Tanks

Residential buildings and lofts are increasingly looking for sectional tanks as their domestic water storage solution because they can hold more potable water than one-piece tanks. This is sufficient for residential buildings housing many occupants. Tricel has experienced and skilled site crews across Ireland that will carry out your sectional tank installation.

Similar to the one piece tanks, our sectional tanks are also GRP manufactured, offering customers the long-term water storage solution they are after. Tricel’s range of water storage tanks suitable for domestic applications, including the one piece tanks, can all be insulated to F30, which has numerous benefits.
