Choose rain water – it’s only natural

Capture   With water becoming a precious resource and the cost of water continuing to increase, there is no better time than now to consider installing a rain water tank. Installing a small tank, up to 10,000 litres, in your backyard for watering the garden can save you money, and help the environment. Rain water tanks can also be connected to the house mains for use in toilets and washing machines or for supplying the hot water system. There is nothing more refreshing than the taste of pure, natural rainwater. When considering the installation of a rainwater tank, there are some factors that you need to take into account: What you intend to use the water for and how large your catchment area is. How many people live in the home and what your current water usage is. • The size of your garden. • How much space you need • What guarantee does the tank have • What preparation is required to install the tank. • Will you need council approval.
