As more people are becoming conscious of the consistent change in climate, particularly rainfall pattern all over Australia, many have started acting upon their observations. You likely have noticed how water restrictions have become tighter and more rigorous yourself. And it’s time that you plan and prepare now, especially when it comes to dealing with the scarcity of water supply and rising costs.
One way to prepare your household is making the most of rainwater through recycling. Through a rainwater container system, like a poly storage tank, you can do your part in conserving and preserving the environment, while also enjoying a number of benefits.
Key to self-sufficiency
Regardless of the size of the tank you install, it already provides you with a way to become self-sufficient. Of course, the bigger the storage solution, the more water you can gather and use at home.
Think about it: An average Australian home with a rainwater tank can minimise their local water supply usage by up to 100,000 litres every year. This amount only covers the potentially harvested water from the roof. Imagine how much more you can save and store for later use from other collection methods. What you collect with the tank, you can then use for offsetting your household water budget.
Use for a variety of applications
You can use the water you accumulate for almost anything you usually need water for. For instance, you can use it for flushing the toilet, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, cleaning the house and car, and tending to your lawn or garden. There are even types of systems that help preserve the quality of the water, so it’ll remain safe for human consumption.
The list of functions of these water storage containers is much more extensive than what’s discussed above, but you should already have a general idea of just how beneficial they are.
