COVERS FOR RESERVOIRS

GET AN IMPORTANT WATER SAVINGS

The main problem when collecting water in reservoirs and tanks is, without doubt, the loss of water through evaporation.  In warm, dry climates this can represent a loss of 1,800-2,000 litres per square metre of stored water.  That is to say, for a surface area the size of a football pitch (1 hectare), 20 million litres of water are lost each year. A variety of factors affect evaporation, such as:

  • The air temperature.
  • The water temperature.
  • Solar radiation.
  • Relative humidity of the air.
  • Wind speed.

Together with the problem of evaporation, we can add the proliferation of algae, which leads to high costs in maintaining the pump and irrigation systems.

To counteract these problems, we can install a reservoir cover.  This is a mesh cover for shade, which hangs from a rectangular network of cables, reducing the evaporation by up to 80%.  This is the most extensively used technique, used especially with irrigation tanks.
