The accumulator tank is an analogue of a water tower and serves as a buffer tank, which allows to extend the operating life of the pumps in the water supply system.
Thanks to the pumping of water into the tank and the further automatic shutdown of the device, the pump operates in a more gentle mode. This allows you to significantly extend its service life. On the modern market of equipment for individual water supply systems, there are two types of hydraulic tanks — membrane and storage.
The former are steel structures with a bag-shaped or pear-shaped rubber membrane into which water is pumped. The flow of water is prevented by a check valve, and the pressure is controlled by means of a pressure gauge. Nitrogen is injected between the membrane and the casing. Water enters the system when the tap is opened. The suction pump is switched on automatically when the tank is partially empty. All modern hydroaccumulation tanks, a wide range of which are presented atskvaginagidroakkumuljatory, can serve as a reserve tank for storing water.
The volume of the hydraulic tank is selected depending on the purpose. In country houses, a device designed for 12-24 liters is quite enough. If the district is characterized by frequent power outages, then this is not enough, since such an amount of water can hardly be called "reserve". To protect yourself from possible problems, you can purchase a tank with a capacity ranging from 250 to 500 liters. It all depends on the duration and frequency of power outages.
Storage tanks, in contrast to membrane ones, have huge volumes of capacity, which make it possible to provide daily water consumption, that is, about one cubic meter. They have impressive dimensions and weight, therefore, they are installed in rooms that can withstand heavy loads. Most often, storage tanks are placed in attics or upper floors. Such structures are equipped with an automatic system that turns on the pump when the water level drops to a certain level..
