You have decided to purchase a rainwater tank. Great! A rainwater tank can help you conserve water and save on your water bills too. You can use the harvested water to flush toilets, clean your car or water your garden. When there is a water shortage, a rainwater tank can be a life saver.
Finding the right water tank
A rainwater tank will not only gather rainwater for you but should cater for your needs. What if you purchase a tank that is too big for your space at home? Or rather, too small a tank that you can’t maximise its use properly? This is the main reason why you need to get the correct rainwater tank. Be careful in choosing a rainwater tank and if possible, get quotes from a trusted supplier.
Positioning your rainwater tank
Once you find the right rainwater tank, you and your installer should find the perfect place to set it up. Your backyard is the perfect place, just check on council guide lines in regards to how close to the fences you can go. When deciding on where to put your tank, here are a few points to consider:
- Maximise the catchment area for the tank
- Minimise the plumbing and connection cost
- Provide a safe and stable foundation as the tank can become quite heavy once it is full of water.
Make sure you consider these things to ensure you get the best out of your rainwater tank. You will soon be noticing a big difference in your life and you’ll be thanking your lucky stars for your investment.
