When it comes to collecting and saving water, winter is undoubtedly the best time of year. Heavy downpours from the heavens means we use less water on our gardens and in our homes and more water can be collected and stored in a rainwater tank. Whilst making purchases for the longevity of your garden and home in summer is not on the top of your list in the middle of winter, here are the benefits to buying and installing a rainwater tank in winter.
- Rainwater is in surplus….and it’s free!
- Off season means less wait time
- Use it in your home
- Save money and the planet
Rainwater is in Surplus and It’s Free!
What better time to make the most of the miserable weather than to collect the downpour itself? Its cooler and the rain is heavy so less chance of the water being evaporated or carrying any nasties with it. Your only limit to how much you can collect is how big your tank is!
Off Season Means Less Wait Time
Just like swimming pools, rainwater tanks can be seasonal purchases. Choose to purchase and install your rainwater tank when the rain is actually falling and you’ll skip the queue and wait times.
Use it in Your Home
Just like the old days, your rainwater tank can be plumbed to use the water in your home. Flush your toilets with recycled water and save up to 12 litres of water with each flush. Water your indoor plants, wash your car or even give your clothes a scrub with water collected straight from the sky.
Save Money and The Planet
Water rates and bills are going up, so make the most of the free stuff and store it for the drier months. Water is a precious commodity, getting rarer every summer, so the more we can collect and control in our own supply contributes not only to the preservation of resources, but to the protection of the environment.
