Other than time, water is one of our most precious resources. As Australians, we have a special interest in conserving this natural resource as it’s incredibly scarce, and installing a rainwater tank in your home is one of the best ways to do so. With this article, we’re going to run you through the process and how your plumber can help you.
Regardless of where you live, rainwater is amazingly valuable. Those of us who live in rural areas are probably already making use of rainwater, but for urban dwellers, there’s never been a better time to start including this resource as part of your personal water supply. During water restrictions, rainwater can be used in the place of tap water for watering the garden, and can be used in the washing machine and for toilet water if the tank is plugged into your house.
Before your install your tank, it’s important to check with your local council, or state/territory authority to check for any regulations that may affect the way that you’re able to collect and use rainwater in your area. In particular, there are often specifications with regards to health advice when using rainwater tanks. Furthermore, you may be eligible for assistance, or rebates to help with the costs.
When deciding on the best rainwater tank for your home, think about factors such as size, location, use of rainwater and maintenance requirements. If you’re planning on using your rainwater indoors, it’s essential that you consult a plumber to confirm that your home is suitable for a rainwater tank, as well as ensuring that they install it for you so that it complies with safety regulations.
