As compared to other sources, a water tank stores water and is enclosed then raised above the ground to avoid water getting dirty and contaminated. Rather than other sources where the water is contaminated when most of the children draw water from them.
The use of the water tank is of much significance since it eliminates the spread of water borne diseases like cholera, typhoid and biohazards as the treatment of water is easier, controlled and can be made safe for consumption.
A water tank is expensive to buy and when it comes to installation of water in the school is costly. The pipes have to be installed and the taps fixed for its smooth running. The pipes must be laid underground a depth of about 2 meters. As an institution, you need to register at the water supply center and pay a registration fee then the water will be being psi for as per the consumption of water at the institution each month.
It is unhealthy for our children to use dirty water which is not safe for use. Water is life! Our children depend on water for their survival! During the dry season, many institutions lack water or have inadequate supply of water. A water tank stores water for consumptions in such times.
