Rainwater Tanks in Perth

With winter approaching, now is the time to think about installing a rainwater tank to reduce your home's reliance on Perth's precious mains water

Rainwater tanks are an excellent option to reduce your annual household water costs and make your own contribution to reducing for impact on the environment. For example, if you have a 150sqm roof, you could harvest and use up to 120,000 litres of rainwater a year (based on Perth's annual average rainfall). That's 120,000 litres of Perth's precious mains water you are not using. This doesn't mean that you need 120,000 litres of storage, because the rain is spread over time and of course you will be using the water along the way as well. Waterplex Square Water tank

You have the opportunity to make a significant great difference to the local water supply simply by installing a tank. Following the above calculation, if 10 homes in a street install an appropriate sized tank, more than 1 million litres of rainwater could be harvest ed and used in and around the house.

If only half of the 700,000 houses in Perth had a rainwater tank then potentially 56 billion litres would be saved. (Based on an average roof size of 200sqm.)

So if you want to make a difference and to have your own source of water, consider installing a rainwater tank around your home. The styles and types of rainwater tanks are very diverse. Any reputable supplier will be able to help you with the best options available to you.
