Sequel to climate change, unpredictable weather patterns and the escalating need of water, finding water storage solutions have become essential.
Water tanks are used to provide storage of water for use in many applications such as for drinking, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for plants and livestock, irrigation farming, chemical manufacturing, food preparation as well as many other uses.
According to reports, much of the challenge of water scarcity in Rwanda is concentrated in Kigali.
It noted that at the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 there was an unprecedented water shortage for residents of the capital. Kigali residents resorted to rationing in some areas; others depended on untreated swamp water.
This led to an unprecedented need for water storage tanks in the cities of Rwanda, even in the suburbs.
Presently, the two major producers of water tanks in Rwanda are ROTO Tanks and AFRITANK Aquasan Ltd.
