Why every home in Australia needs a rainwater tank
A new report from the Australian government shows that Australians’ water consumption has increased by 30% in the past decade. This is short-sighted and unsustainable in a country where the climate is changing and water supply is limited. One way to help address this water shortage is through rainwater tanks. Rainwater tanks are affordable, easy to install and provide enough water for your household or business. Here are the reasons you need a rainwater tank.
1. They save you money
After a downpour, you can use your rainwater as it collects in a tank. When the tank is full, you can use the water to water your houseplants and garden. The excess water can be used to reduce your reliance on a municipal supply, or used for other purposes such as car washing or bathing. The excess can also be stored in 100-litre water tanks or barrels which are easy to transport and store.
2. They make your property more attractive
Having a rainwater tank installed is an excellent way to improve the appearance of your property. The tanks are designed to blend in with your architecture and add value to your home. Rainwater tanks don’t require a lot of maintenance and they can be installed in an inconspicuous spot on your roof, so they are unlikely to detract from the appearance of your home.
3. They help you protect your home
Installing a rainwater tank is an excellent way to reduce the risk of water damage to your home. Water damage can lead to all kinds of expensive problems, such as mould and mildew. If you don’t have a rainwater tank, your only choice for an emergency water supply is to use your mains supply. If you ever have a burst pipe or another kind of leak, this can lead to expensive repairs and might even cause your insurance premiums to rise.
4. They’re environmentally friendly
Rainwater tanks are an excellent way to reduce your reliance on natural resources. The tanks are also easy to install and use, so you can start benefiting from them quickly. Installing a rainwater tank is an environmentally-friendly choice, and a good way to conserve water worldwide.
5. They’re easy to install and to use
Installing a rainwater tank is an incredibly simple process. Nearly all of the parts needed for installation are included in the kit and installing a tank usually takes less than a week. You need to hire a professional plumber to install the tank for you. Tanks are also easy to maintain, and they don’t require you to do any heavy lifting or plumbing.
How to find a reputable supplier
The market for rainwater tanks is a crowded one and you can find cheap imitations of these products on sale. To protect yourself from inferior products, you need to do your research. Start by finding a reputable supplier of rainwater tanks. The supplier should be knowledgeable and able to answer your questions about tank sizes and installation strategies.
