Water Tanks for Sale in Albuquerque
There’s recently been debate over the value of using water storage barrels in Albuquerque, with one academic claiming that his $500 rain barrel saved him 60 cents whenever it filled up – which was about three times a year. However, spirited debate followed, with people asking why and how to store water?
The ‘why’ is pretty obvious. Sitting as is does on the edge of the Chihuahuan Desert, Albuquerque has a semi-arid climate and receives a whopping 3,420 hours of sunshine a year. With only eight or nine inches of rain annually – around half the level of evaporation – rainfall does not factor into the local government’s water plans, with river and ground water being relied upon instead.
While rainwater collection systems in Albuquerque are not viable on a government level, they can offer an alternative to householders. It’s estimated that the run-off from a simple roof collection system can accommodate a New Mexican household’s toilet flushing for a year. Used in other manners, it could also keep your garden growing, wash your car, or help with the laundry, although local authorities recommend against using potable water tanks. Whichever way your choose to use it, if you buy rain barrels, you’ll be saving considerable amounts on your utility bill and doing your bit for conserving local river and ground water resources.
