Vastu for Overhead Water Tank and Solar Panels - SubhaVaastu.com :

Vastu Shastra for Overhead water Tank | Roof top tank | Solar Panel Fitting Placement: The weight of water makes the place heavy wherever it is placed. Thus the heaviest direction i.e., Southwest is desirable for storing water on the roof. Varuna – the directional lord of West – rules the mysterious world of deep seas and oceans. The overhead water tank is best located towards the west of southwest. Now a days overhead tanks are quite common in most of the houses.

In the earlier years, the ladies used to carry water in pots for domestic purposes on their head. In villages, even now we can see the ladies carrying 2 pots on the head and one pot at the left side and bring drinking water from a long distance. Due to population growth and civilization, ladies have curtailed their outside movements and have started to store water within their houses. They get water either from the bore well or panchayat or municipality tap water. They construct both underground structures and overhead tanks for better utility and convenience. The construction of overhead tanks are important as that of the underground structures.

In most of the houses, we find fault in the location of the over head tanks. People construct the overhead tanks indiscriminately and they suffer afterwards. The overhead tank should be constructed at the Southwest corner of the building or houses. The RCC, Syntex or PVC tanks should be installed at the Southwest corner only. If there is a room at corner, the overhead tank can be constructed South or West, depending upon the space available. The other corners Agni, Vayu (Northwest) and Esana (Northeast) should not be used for keeping overhead tanks. If the over head tank is to be located on terrace, the Southwest corner should be selected first and then only we can construct overhead tanks in other corners.

Otherwise the Southwest load will be lesser than the other sides and more adverse results will occur to the family. We should not construct the overhead tank at the Northeast corner, for any reason. This will affect the children’s development, ladies health and financial status of the family. As the underground tanks are to be constructed at the Northeast corner, we should not construct the overhead tank at the Northeast corner as this is more harmful to the residents. If we construct the overhead tank at the SW corner, it is not necessary to construct any structure at other directions in the terrace.

Please note that Overhead tanks must be covered with lid to prevent breeding of Dengue mosquito.

vastu for overhead tankIn this image the water tank was built towards Southwest corner, there is a gap around the water tank, this is good. The dais or dais (here, the dais means a solid sitting place) (for more information you may visit this link for dais , in this link the dais or dais, all are solid, except only one. These solid constructions are good at ground floor not at terrace, you may construct these dais at terrace, but it should not be the solid one, i.e., in middle there is a gap of this structure. Solid construction may not be wrong here, but the floor may damage only because of weight. see the image -5 of this link, the dais is not solid, please construct the dais at south and west walls at top floor like this). Regarding Solar panels the thick green indicates starting of solar panels and light green indicates ending of solar panels, concentration of weight is at thick green side and less weight gone to light green sides. The center red mark shows you can place the solar panels inside of this line, max try to come out from this line, this line covers 65 % of the south side, the remaining 35% of the place vacant at north side. maintain 50% to 65% if feasible, no problem. Don't cross 65% place from south point. If you need more than 65% place from south, then contact vaastu expert he will alter the things with some more modifications.

Other parts of Overhead tank in Terrace:

vaastu for overhead water tankWater tank is towards North direction, this is not the correct placement at terrace. If residents has more than double the North side open space of their construction then it may not hurt residents, otherwise it may give pains to the residents.

overhead tank Placements on TerraceEast direction water storage tank, this is not the right choice of placement. If there is more than double the East open space in the house than the plinth area then it may not hurt as expected. Better to move this East located water tank towards West.

Northeast vaasthu for overhead water tankNortheast corner placement of water storage tank, this is inauspicious placement for water tank. At any cost don't place the water tank here. Northeast is so delicate, it can't bare any weight, so don't place water storage tank at this point. Some one may unknowingly may even loaded it at this juncture, their life may become disastrous, based on storage capacity, keeping smaller one may not hugely hurt the residents, keeping heavy weight may gives pains to the residents. If the water storage tank is inevitable, then only do one correction, construct one heavier structure towards Southwest corner, which may ward off the evil effects of wrong placement of the water storage tank which was placed at Northeast junction. Case study: A doctor who has 75 years age living and practice in a village in Coastal Andhra Pradesh, the water tank was exactly kept at Northeast corner, once he moved it towards Southwest, he feels relax after 4 months.

West water storage tank on terraceOne of the best placement of the water storage tank at terrace. This is the exact West direction area and the water flows towards East and other parts of the house. The weight is loaded towards West direction. Particularly this direction is also called as Varuna placement. Old Vastu literature also said that keeping water storage tank towards West is good.

South terrace water storage tankThis is also one of the best placement for water storage tank. This is South direction and suitable for water storage. The best practice is keeping the water storage tank towards Southwest is auspicious. 

Now we will come to the exact placement of water storage tank.

Southwest water storage tankThis is the exact and perfect method of placing the water storage tank at terrace, Southwest is the exact load bearing placement. From this direction water will flow to all the other direction which is auspicious. Knowingly or unknowingly if water tank was placed towards Southeast or Northwest, then one small room may be constructed towards Southwest corner of the same terrace and duly ensure that the height of the room should be more than the height of the water tank. Heavy wastage articles may also be kept in that room. One may construct the shelves in that room to place the weights and it parallels the anti placement of water storage tank in the terrace area.

center placement of water storage tankWater tank towards Brahmasthan :

Now water tank became stands or placed at Brahmasthan or center of the terrace, instead of keeping at this place, better to move it towards West or South or better placement is Southwest corner by leaving small rounded part of that Southwest corner.

Question : Dear Sir, In my Rented house, the overhead Concrete Water Tank is existing over my Northwest Bed Room. Is it Bad ? Because, after coming in this rented house, I am not able to save money, not only that the money is being washed out like water and hampering my mental peace in my family regarding financial crisis. Please give me the solution for that - M R Chowdury - Ghaziabad - India.

Answer: All the water over head tanks are not dangerous, only the North, East, Northeast water tanks are not good, after reading your email, it was noted that there might be some other mistakes at your property rather than this over heard tank. Please show your property with one expert, he will guide you the best solution/recommendation. Coming to the point, in your question, it was understood that you may be using the Northwest bedroom, it is not auspicious to sleep in that bedroom, best to choose only the Southwest Master Bedroom as you stated that the water storage tank is above the bedroom, then it was constructed at Northwest. This may not be the good.

A question on Solar Panels on Terrace :

Namaste sir. In general the solar modules installation will take place from North to South inclination. Means the mo up portion will come North and downward will come to South side. Recently the customer is asking us to give the solution without effecting vasthu. He is asking us to install the modules from South to North inclination instead of North to South. If its not possible he told that he will plan for construction of wall little height than module inclination at South side. Our concern is that wall shadow will fall on the modules. Actually first time we have faced this type of query, and we don't have knowledge about vasthu. Fortunately while browsing I found the solution offered by you. Does vastu is required to see for installation of solar modules? What could be the best suggesting method? Sometimes the roofs are in L- shape too - Nagalakshmi - Hyderabad - Telangana - India.

Answer : Actually there is no word solar panel in any old literature. On those days our Indian Rushi's (sages) were not informed about these new developments or technologies. These were invented by us in this short term period only, when compare with Rushi's period say about thousand years back etc. Here we should think and solve on this question by way of logic. The inclination should not be towards South or West parts, but the solar panels should be fixed towards South inclination. In the above question the resident plans to construct the wall little more height to balance this solar plates South inclination. Due to this wall raising "sun rays" may not fall on solar panels, so here residents may do one simple technique, the floor level may be made it as South side elevated and North become inclination, so there is automatically heavy weight towards South side and lesser weight towards North side. If this is also not satisfied then residents may construct the dais towards South direction very near to South wall as shown in the above image etc. If this answer is also not satisfied then arrange some plastic sheets towards North direction of the house, due to this there is no slanting plastic sheets towards South, but where as North direction has such facilitation. Honestly speaking this plastic sheets towards North is not at all required.

Here the residents has to know about one rule i.e., "Law Of Spreading", all the houses which solar panels were fixed with same principle only, so particularly it never curse you, so just forget about this issue and install the solar panels at your terrace. No need to hurry or worry.

Some residents asks that if they has their master bedroom towards Southwest then constructing or keeping the water tank at Southwest may giving any harm to them, is it giving any defects. Nothing to worry about to keeping the water storage tank above the bedroom. Master bedroom came towards Southwest so breadwinners has Northeast walks, this is auspicious placement of bedroom. Keeping the water storage tank towards Southwest is also auspicious, what ever the weight it has it spreads to the area where it was taken seated. So better to keep the water storage at Southwest and keep your bed little bit move towards East or North, so you may not be exactly sleeping under the tank. Further we did not heard any bad effects if residents sleeping under the water storage tank and faced the troubled. If we get any of such incidents we may publish the case studies here. In our entire consultation years, we did not heard about any of such incidents. Let us know if you experienced any of such practicals like after moving the water tank the residents feels relaxation in their life. We await for your feedback.

External Water storage tank at SouthwestWish to provide one excellent idea. Some homes are bigger or some homes has a opportunity to construct one water storage tank at Southwest corner of the home, this water tank will not touch either the main home or compound wall. Its a separate structure and placed at Southwest of the entire home, some body may construct it with concrete and some body may built with steel rods etc. If any body constructed it with concrete then its ultimate. Constructing with concrete may not be possible to all residents, in such case one may do like this way, if this system is built with iron rods like shown in this image then close the bottom levels upto 14 feet or upto house first floor height levels etc, close the iron rods with sheets and make it with room type. It works good. If it was constructed with concrete then make the lower levels as a room. The floor of the room should be elevated than the floor heights of the Southwest floor levels of the main home. Thanks to Benz- France.

Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA

Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - USA.

I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
