Water Storage Solutions for Your Guest Home

 As an Airbnb, VRBO or hosting in your guest house, ensuring that your property has a reliable water supply is essential for providing a comfortable experience for your guests. In some areas, water supply may not always be consistent, and having a proper water storage system in place can help mitigate any potential issues. Here are some tips for ensuring that your Airbnb has a sufficient water supply through proper water storage:

  1. Assess Your Water Needs: Start by assessing the water needs of your property based on the number of guests you expect to host and the typical water usage patterns. This will help you determine the required water storage capacity.

  1. Install Water Tanks: Consider installing water tanks to store a reserve supply of water. The size of the water tank will depend on factors such as the size of your property, the average occupancy, and local water availability. Ensure that the tanks are properly sealed and maintained to prevent contamination.

 A popular water storage solution is Custom Roto Molding poly plastic 1000-gallon water storage tanks

Why are the 1000 gallon FDA approved water storage tanks popular? 

  • Secure covering/lid prevents contamination.

  • Easy to install inlets and outlets. (Installation of covering and outlets are necessary at the delivery point)

  • The tanks are 50 ½ inches tall and 90” in diameter allowing for storage underneath a structure as seen in the pictures below.

  • Five tanks stack (nestable) on a pallet allowing for economical shipping in the U.S. or abroad. 

  1. Rainwater Harvesting: If local regulations permit, consider setting up a rainwater harvesting system to collect and store rainwater for non-potable uses such as watering plants, cleaning, and flushing toilets. This can help reduce the demand on the main water supply.

  1. Water Filtration and Purification: Invest in a reliable water filtration and purification system to ensure that the stored water remains clean and safe for use. Regularly maintain and monitor the filtration system to ensure its effectiveness.

  1. Emergency Preparedness: In the event of a water supply disruption, have a contingency plan in place. Stock up on bottled water for drinking and consider installing a backup generator to power water pumps in case of power outages.

By implementing these water storage solutions, you can ensure your guests' comfort and convenience.

Prioritizing water storage not only enhances the guest experience but also demonstrates your commitment to providing a well-prepared and welcoming accommodation.
