Determining the Right Tank Capacity

The formula to determine the capacity of the tank

Capacity = Usage * Number of Users

Capacity: The amount of volume needed to meet the needs of clean water for 1 day (liters / day)

Usage: The amount of clean water usage per user in 1 day (liter / user / day)

Number of Users: The number of clean water users in 1 day.
The user unit depends on the type of designation of the building. (see table)
