According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the amount of Australian households sourcing water from a rainwater tank has dramatically increased in the last few years. More and more families rely on rainwater as their main source of drinking water and because of this shift, the installation of rainwater tanks has increased by up to 66% in some areas.
As we know, rain water is one of the The world's largest wasted resources and every average household without a rainwater tank wastes tens of thousands of gallons of valuable liquid. People who have rainwater tanks are smart, as they tap into one of the largest natural resources on the planet, which on top of all, is free.
If you are considering installing a rainwater catchment system, you are doing both you and the
Solarflow, a Melbourne-based company dedicated to providing outstanding excellence in all areas of water and energy conservation, believes that a huge amount of money will be saved as well. "A house without a water tank is like a car without brakes". They are so right! Without water we would be lost. Just try to imagine how many times a day we grab for the water tap! Showering in the morning, making tea or coffee, the dog needs a drink, boiling potatoes, washing the car, watering the plants, flushing the toilet, the pond in the backyard, and the list keeps growing. So why not capture the rain and ease our water bill as well as the overburdened ecology?
Rainwater tanks are no longer huge, round, ugly eye-sores. Today, they are manufactured in a variety of materials, aesthetically matching your urban and suburban dwelling and can be delivered in many attractive shapes, sizes and colors. Installing a rainwater tank alongside a building, in the garden, underground or under decking is simple.
o Rain falls from the sky onto the roof.
o The fluid flows from the roof to the gutters and downpipes. The required amount of downpipes will depend on the size of the rainwater tank.
o The flowing water will then pour into the tank through a mesh filter screen.
o The water will be stored until it is used.
o During extended rainfall, the tank may beome full.
Once you have enough rainwater accumulated, the stored water can be 'gravity fed' from your tank on the garden. Installing a pressure pump will get water to outdoor garden taps, or will allow toilet flushing indoors. Rainwater can also be used for doing laundry.
Rainwater tanks require very little maintenance. All you need to do is clean the roof, gutters, filters and flush devices from insects, leaves, debris and overhanging tree branches.
If you think about it, you will have to agree; you will need to agree to the terms and conditions set out below. what better and easier way is there to conserve water and, at the same time, save on your water bill, rather than invest in a state-of-the-art rainwater tank?
