As we all know, water is a precious resource and is the source of all life. The usage of water throughout Australia’s homes and industries continues to rise, and so does the cost of acquiring that water. Regardless of whether you’re building a new home or you live in an existing home the benefits of installing rainwater tanks are far reaching!
Save on your water bill
By installing a water tank on your property you can greatly reduce or eliminate the consumption of water from your main water supply. This allows you to save money on your water bill, for the long term.
Preserve a natural resource
Did you know? For every 1 mm of rain that falls on 1 square metre of land, you collect about 1 litre of water. If your local area receives decent annual rainfall, then your collection of water will accumulate quickly and in the process you are doing your bit to preserve a natural resource.
Increase the value of your home
By making your home more self-sufficient you automatically increase it’s value. To keep your water cooler for longer, and to provide healthier drinking water we recommend installing a concrete water tank – which can also withstand a bush fire.
Cultivate your own produce
Veggie gardens tend to produce a better yield when they are watered with rainwater. By cultivating your own produce you also safeguard yourself against seasonal price rises for produce, especially after periods of flooding when the price of fruit and vegetables tends to rise sharply.
Increase your environmental awareness
Installing a water tank trains your brain to gradually become more environmentally aware, which can only mean a more sustainable future for us all! The fact that you visually see you water tank every day means that sub consciously you are developing better water saving habits.
Taste the freshness
One of the main benefits of installing rainwater tanks is the great taste of the drinking water! Pure rainwater is so crisp and refreshing when compared to tap water, and drinking more water can only be good for you!
Reduce your carbon footprint
By having access to rain water on your property, you are much less likely to feel the need to buy bottled water; and that’s major step forward in reducing your carbon footprint. And remember – less plastic means less landfill!
