I live in a group apartment where there is severe water supply problem. We have a common sump in basement which can be filled with water from external supply sources like water tanker trucks on payment basis. Actually, I am looking for a solution which I can only individually utilize it. I am planning to install a overhead tank on the terrace of the apartment and provide pipe lines additionally to my flat. Now, if I want to refill the overhead tank with truck water supply tanker, how easily I can pump the water to the terrace?
You should contact the water supplier for a metered line to your reservoir so you can segregate water with a clear conscience. They can then pump to your terrace.
