Hi, we have 12 apartments in a building and have 12 individual overhead tanks. The water supply to the tanks is through a single pipe and the water gets filled in one tank after another so that the tank at the last is the last one to get filled. Please suggest a full-proof mechanism by which the water can be filled simultaneously in all the 12 tanks, once we switch on the motor? Thanks.

The domestic drainage (bathing, washing etc) is almost not getting absorbed by soak pit and comes out everyday. Please suggest a cost-effective way to handle this drainage issue ?
