Intro: The mian aim of the project is to create a situated atmosphere in the household which is efficient and cheapest to run. Multipurpose creation or a live design that opens a connection of water, gas and electricity which all have one thing in common, which is energy and that is what we will be modernising. Today’s ideal home is built to the correct Australian standards, which allow household consumers money and is also friendly towards the atmosphere. Our company will strive to its limits to the most accurate assets of the household to allow its energy efficient module to be at its very best. the water tank: There are different kinds of water tanks- but mainly they are used to store water for human consumption- either for home use or commercial. , tanks can be used for various purposes: "above ground cisterns storing residential safe drinking water, rainwater harvesting, long term water storage, emergency potable water storage, fire protection water tanks & farm irrigation."
