Zwart Systems offers water silos as a cost-effective solution to store water in your greenhouse. With stored water, you will have irrigation water you can control on your own terms.
Water Storage Systems
Farms in North America are experiencing water shortages and/or rising water costs. By installing water silos farms can turn free rainwater into a valuable advantage.
If you have on-site wells, a water silo allows wells to run continuously, filling a water buffer large enough to store water to irrigate an entire farm for a day.
Farms with gutter connect greenhouses can collect free rainwater that would otherwise drain away. Zwart can help you find the right solution for your water storage needs.
Water Storage Overview
All water silos have a coated bottom ring and access points located in the floor. A silo can be buried up to 36” to help stabilize outdoor installations, or to gain more water storage in indoor installations. Silos can store up to 1.7 million liters (470,000 gallons) of water. Smaller poly tank installations are also available. Fabric, floating and hard covers are available for all water silos.
