Reduce harm to our waterways caused by build-up of stormwater, overcome the inconvenience of water restrictions and conserve this valuable resource when you buy and install a rainwater tank at home. Tank water can be used to flush toilets, wash cars and clothes, and water plants and gardens, which in turn helps reduce overwhelming demand on drinking water.
How do rainwater tanks work?
Rainwater tanks work by collecting stormwater run-off from surfaces like the roof of your house, reducing the amount of water that enters our waterways. They employ an overflow mechanism so that excess water is redirected once a tank fills up.
Types of water tanks
When it comes to buying a quality rain water tank, you have various specifications to consider. Firstly, what is the ideal capacity for your household needs? With tanks ranging from 2000 litres to 10,000 litres available on eBay, your decision comes down to factors such as the number of people it will provide for, the main purposes it will be used for, and the frequency of use. Aside from the overall capacity, you can choose between various dimensions of round, slimline and underwater tanks. You should also take note of the inlet and outlet positions, plus accessories such as standard tank fittings, inlet strainer and overflow screen. You will be spoilt for colour choice with models in everything from off white, grey and beige to dark green and black.
Benefits of rainwater tanks
Rainwater tanks have many advantages. They retain water close to the source, minimise daily water usage around the home, reduce the strain on the stormwater drainage system, and reduce site run-off. Sellers generally include the warranty with any new purchase.
