Sustainability is one of the driving topics in virtually every sector of society. The goal is always to do something the most efficiently with the best results. In other words, one aims to get the most gains with the least amount of energy. Some commercial facilities use water diversion tanks, also known as first flush diverters, to make the most of rainwater. If you need water diversion tank cleaning in Maryland, Pennsylvania, D.C., Delaware, or Northern Virginia, Jet Blast Inc. is at your service.
What Is a Water Diversion Tank?
All water diversion tanks work in a similar fashion with the same ultimate goal. This system collects rainwater as it falls on a given building and collects the first “flush” of rainwater in a diversion tank before allowing the rest of the rainwater to flow through into a water storage tank.
This first collection of rainwater has contaminants such as dirt, chemicals, animal droppings, and plant matter. By the time the diverter tank is full, the rest of the water that enters the system is clean and safe for use.
Downpipe Water Diverters
One of the most popular water diverters for commercial facilities is the downpipe water diverter. This system is a T-shaped pipe with a ball inside the vertical pipe. As rainwater streams through one end of the T cross line, it falls into the vertical receptacle. When the ball floats to the top, it seals the chamber from the horizontal pipe, letting the rest of the water flow all the way through.
Who Uses Water Diversion Tanks?
Given the many benefits that come with water diversion tanks, such as reduced stormwater runoff and municipal water processing, many industries use these systems in their buildings. Some of these industries include the following: office buildings, military bases, retail centers, residential developments, hotels, parks, and museums.
