What Are All Ideal Locations Of Terrace Water Storage Tank as Per Vastu

The weight of water makes the place heavy wherever it is stored. Thus the heaviest direction i.e., Southwest is desirable for storing water on the roof.

Varuna – the directional lord of the West – Rules the mysterious world of deep seas and oceans.

In the earlier years, respected ladies used to carry water in pots for domestic purposes on their heads. In villages, even now we can see many ladies carrying 2 pots on the head and one pot on the left side and bringing 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 has significance as constructing the underground water tank structures.

Can I Place the Water Storage Tank in the North Direction?

What Are the Ideal Location to Keep the Water Storage Tank on the Terrace?

Normally the water storage tanks can be super fit at Southwest on the terrace. Residents can keep the water storage tank in the Southwest direction on the terrace. Further arranging the tank at West direction is also recommended. Finally, the South direction is also suggested to keep the storage tank.

Vastu Wise Suitable Locations for Terrace Storage Water Tanks

1. In most of the houses, we find fault in the location of the overhead tanks. Some residents construct the overhead tanks indiscriminately and they suffer afterward. The overhead tank should be constructed at the Southwest corner of the building.

2. The RCC, Syntex, or PVC tanks should be installed at the Southwest corner only. If there is a room constructed at the SW corner, the overhead tank can be constructed above this corner room "or" keep it either South or West next to this corner room ( study interesting facts about West direction), depending upon the space available.

3. Avoid keeping terrace water storage tanks at Esanya (Northeast corner). If the overhead tank placement is to be located on the terrace, the Southwest corner should be selected first, and then only we can construct overhead tanks in other corners.

4. If missing to keep water tank other than SW, then the Southwest area load will be lesser than the other sides, which may cause adverse results.

5. 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 may harm the harmony. If we construct the overhead tank at the SW corner, it is "not" necessary to construct any structure in other directions on the terrace.

6. Many residents thought that several Vastu recommendations are many times inconvenient and uneconomical. The well or underground water should be in the Northeastern direction and the overhead tank in the Southwestern direction. This requires the longest length of pipe from the well to the overhead tank and is uneconomical if we use an electric pump to pump water to the overhead tank. This is acceptable. When compared with future benefits with this system, the expenditure placed on these arrangements will become nothing.

7. The Overhead tanks must be covered with a lid to prevent the breeding of Dengue mosquitos.

8. Kindly clean the overhead water tanks frequently, say about 2 months once. Cleaning monthly once is superb. This method protects health of the family members. Regularly observe the dust levels in the tank. If you found any dust is stagnated immediately ask the labor to clean the entire tank and use human safety chemical liquids.

If the water storage tank is inevitable, then only do one correction, construct one heavier structure towards the Southwest corner, which may ward off the evil effects of wrong placement of the water storage tank which was placed at Northeast junction.

External Water storage tank at SouthwestCertain residences are spacious enough, or have the feasibility, to establish an external water storage tank in the Southwest corner.

While some might opt for concrete construction, others might use steel rods. However, using concrete is considered optimal and adding additional positive energies.

Not all homeowners might find it feasible to constructing with concrete. In such scenarios, if the structure is made of iron rods as depicted in the image, it's advisable to seal the bottom up to 14 feet or up to the height of the house's first floor. By covering the iron rods with iron sheets, it can resemble a room.

When constructed using concrete, the lower section can be fashioned into a room. The floor of this room should be raised higher than the Southwest floor levels of the main residence. Acknowledgment to Benz Shona - France.

Vastu Testimonials Delivered By Respected Residents

Dear Suresh, I am pleased to inform you that like the way you provided consultation for my home and explained to me all the changes required inside and outside home. I really appreciate the diagrams that you prepared for my home with pictures and arrows showing the changes need to be done. Above all, you explained very well the reasons behind changes you recommended for my home with great clarity and sense of humor. No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. 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 an incredible delight 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

"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as Vastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vastu and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - 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
