If you are looking for ways on how you can decrease your water bill and save money at the same time, why not consider collecting rain water? Rain water falls free from the sky. If you can store rain water, you can use it later to:
- Wash your clothes
- Flush your toilet
- Water your plants
- Wash your car
Sound simple, doesn’t it? Collect and store rain water through using a rainwater tank is really easy. Firstly, you need to buy a rainwater tank but that’s when things get a little harder, what size and type of tank do you need?
Flush your toilet with rainwater and save, what do you need to know?
Before you buy a rainwater tank, it’s important to make a plan first so you can be sure that you’ll end up getting the tank that best suits your needs. Here are some things that you need to consider:
- Size and type of tank
- Available space
- Suitability of your roofing materials
- Your budget
- Council requirements
You need to consider these things to make sure that everything is in order and in place. Apart from these, you also need to prepare for some extra expenses such as:
- Extra plumbing
- Gutter and roof alterations
- A flow regulator
- A pump
- Tank stands above the ground
These are just a few of possible cost that you should prepare for. It will take a little while for the benefits to outweigh the costs, especially if you are retro fitting an existing system but think of it as a long term investment in not only saving money but the environment too. We use water to flush our toilets all year round and wouldn’t it be good to do it with water that would usually be running out onto the ground?
Flush your toilet with rainwater, plan it into your new home and save.
