Installing Rainwater Tanks in Sydney
Rainwater tanks capture water which would otherwise be wasted. They will help you save money when watering the garden, washing the car, or flushing your toilet. In Australia, we are consistently having years of drought and water restrictions. This has made us forward think and ensure we have alternate ways to water our plants and grass during those hard summer months.
Benefits of Rainwater tanks in Sydney
There is a long list of benefits to consider when deciding to install a rainwater tank at your property. It is a great way to reduce large water bills and help the environment, whilst also keeping your garden green and your car clean during water shortages. They now come in a large array of colours, shapes, and sizes to suit any personal preferences or property requirements.
What Size Tank will best suit your needs?
Residential rainwater tanks normally range from 660 litres to 20,000 litres. Smaller tanks are perfect for small homes or granny flats with basic toilet flushing or gardening.
If you’re looking to use rainwater for your washing machine, you would need a tank with a 2,000 litres capacity, this would be closer to the 3,000-5,000 litre range for bigger homes.
If you want to use rainwater as a supply for an entire home with potable water and consistent usage, a tank with a 5,000 litre capacity would be necessary at a minimum.
Make sure to check with your local council for any specific regulations which outline minimum tank capacities or guidelines, as they vary depending which council you are in within Sydney.
