Vastu For Water Tank
1. The overhead water tank should be in the west or south-west direction of the building.
2. The overhead water tank in the south-west direction should be at least two feet above the uppermost slab. It should not be touching the slab. The sunrays first fall on this tank and are absorbed in water. Due to water, this comer becomes heavy and it is advantageous. But under no condition the overhead tank in the south-west comer should leak. Dampness in the south-west comer is not good. Therefore, the tank is placed on a slab higher than the slab of the building.
3. The north-east comer belongs to water element. Still a very big overhead tank is not proper in this direction because the north-east corner should not be heavy under any condition.
4. Overhead tank should not be located in the south-east comer. Loss of wealth and accidents are possible. The effects of overhead tank in the south direction are of medium effect. Even this tank should be two feet above the slab of the roof and should not leak.
5. If the tank is built in the west side it is very beneficial. This is the direction of the Lord Varuna and he is in charge of rains. This tank in the west direction can be built over the slab itself. There is no necessity of leaving a gap of two feet.
6. Overhead tank should not be in the north-west direction as far as possible. If it is, it should be small in size, of less height, and situated at a distance of at least two feet from the north-west comer. The water in this tank is not used fully and gets finished early.
7. Overhead tank should not be in the middle (Bramhasthan). If there is a load on the Bramba, life becomes impossible to live. One does not feel like staying in the house. If the over head tank at the Brambasthan is removed, surprising advantages can be experienced within 21 days.
8. The overhead water tank should not be of plastic as far as possible. If it is a plastic tank it should be of blue or black colour. 1his leads to absorption of sunrays. As far as possible, there should be different tanks for drinking and cooking and for toilets, bathrooms, etc.
