Consider Storing Water
There are some locations that PDWA requires members to have a storage tank.
If your home is up a hill from our main line you will need to have a storage tank and a booster pump to keep the tank full.
We do not design these systems. There are pump, plumber, and water companies in the area that can design, install and service tanks and pumps for you.
Having a storage tank that is fed by your Perrydale water meter and then flows into your house can be helpful in many ways.
The storage tank helps any sediment from the wells settle out of your water.
You can regulate your pressure with a booster pump or gravity depending on how it is set up.
You will have XXX gallons on hand should you need it for an emergency.
The Red Cross recommends having three days of stored water on hand for every person and pet. Consider your farm animals too.
If you are considering a filter, call the office for suggestions.
