VAASTU SHASTRA | SUMP, OVERHEAD WATER TANK

TYPES OF WATER TANKS IN A HOUSE:
There are two types of Water Tanks that are part of any House:
  • The Underground Water tank also known as the Sump, to which the municipal water pipe is connected. This tank has to be close to the road as the water lines run along the road. 
  • The Overhead Water Tank. from which the water used in the house, flows out into the taps. The water from the sump or Well/Borewell is pumped into the Overhead tank in order for it to be able to flow down into the house.
Here are some Vaastu Guidelines for the design of the Water tanks, that you should consider while designing your house.


VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR POSITION OF SUMP OR UNDERGROUND WATER TANK:
  • The Sump should be located in the North-East corner.
  • The Sump should not touch the compound walls or the building walls.
  • The Sump should be near the corporation water lines, which means, that it should be near the main road.

VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR POSITION OF THE OVERHEAD WATER TANK:
  • The Overhead water tank should be in the West or South-West of the building so that this corner becomes the heaviest which will balance out positive energy in the house.
  • Avoid the Overhead tank in the North-East corner of the House, even though the North-East represents Water, because this corner should be the lightest for the balance of energy.
  • Avoid the Overhead water tank in the South-East corner.
  • Also, avoid the Overhead water tank in the North-West corner (if possible).However if only the North-West is available, then the tank should be small in size, of less height, and situated at a distance of at least two feet from the North-West corner.
  • Avoid the Overhead tank in the centre of the building (Bramhasthan).
VAASTU SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE OVERHEAD WATER TANK:
  • The Overhead tank should not directly rest on the roof slab.
  • The Overhead tank should be at least 2" (60cm) above the topmost roof slab.
  • The Overhead water tank can be lined with light coloured tiles.
  • The Solar geyser should be above the level of the overhead water tank.
  • Avoid plastic water tanks as far as possible. In case you use plastic water tanks, use black or dark blue coloured ones.
  • Two separate Overhead water tanks are preferred - One , for storing water for drinking, cooking etc and the other, for storing water for bathrooms, gardens etc.
The Overhead tanks are located on top of the roof and are accessed by the Staircase. Read the Vaastu Guidelines for a Staircase here:
