Why invest in rainwater tanks?

Rainwater tanks are a big investment, especially for those with not a lot of space. However, If you decide to take the plunge they have a range of benefits, here’s a few of the big ones.

Water Conservation. Rainwater tanks allow you to collect and store rainwater, reducing your reliance on mains water supply. This conservation of water is especially important in regions prone to drought.

Cost Savings. By using rainwater for activities such as watering gardens, flushing toilets, or even washing clothes, you can reduce household water bills significantly. Eventually, the savings on water bills can even offset the initial investment made in the purchase and installation of a rainwater tank.

Water Quality. Rainwater is generally soft and free from many of the chemicals found in treated mains water, making it suitable for various non-potable uses such as irrigation, car washing, and toilet flushing. It can also be treated for drinking purposes with proper filtration and disinfection systems.

Environmental Benefits. Harvesting rainwater reduces the demand for mains water, which helps to reduce strain on local water sources. It also reduces the energy required for water treatment and distribution, lowering the carbon footprint associated with water usage. Installing rainwater tanks encourages your household to adopt more sustainable practices by making you more aware of your water usage. This can promote a sense of environmental responsibility and help you become more self-reliant in your water management.

Emergency Water Supply. In regions prone to natural disasters or where mains water supply may be unreliable, rainwater tanks can serve as an emergency water source. This can be crucial during droughts, floods, or other emergencies when access to mains water may be limited.

Reduced Stormwater Runoff. Rainwater tanks help reduce stormwater runoff, which can mitigate flooding and erosion, and prevent pollution of natural waterways by reducing the flow of contaminants carried by runoff.
