Prices of Water Tanks in Kenya

Water supply in Kenya is characterized by low levels of access particularly in urban slums and in rural areas, as well as poor service quality in the form of intermittent water supply. These and so many other reasons have prompted citizens to turn to water tanks in Kenya, which have proven to be more reliable than piped water and other sources.

Water tanks in Kenya come in different materials, shapes, sizes, and applications. However, as of now the most popular water tanks in Kenya are the ones made from plastic, the reason being that this kind of water tank is durable, affordable, and easy to install.
