The popularity of the rain water tank as a home peripheral lies on its proven advantages, such as aiding in the reduction of water bills and providing an alternative water source during water constrictions caused by droughts. Moreover, it could help in maintaining a green and healthy garden and, depending on its size, in reducing the use of mains water by as much as 100 percent. It appeals to more people because of its simplicity in operation—you don’t need to worry about water levels in dams when you could utilize the amount of rainwater falling on your roof. Well-designed and well-maintained Perth water tanks can be deemed suitable for home use. While it might not be advisable to drink collected rainwater unless you have the suitable filtration in place.

Although you may survive without food for up to three weeks, you will perish without water for more than three days. With heat gradually drying up the usual water resources, such as dams, every drop of water becomes ever more important and worth saving. In response to this urgent need, and to address the increasing cost of water distribution, a growing number of Australian households now employ certain ways to utilise this gradually decreasing resource more efficiently, such as collecting rainwater. Utilising rain water tanks in WA homes, for instance, is becoming popular for this purpose. In fact, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 32% of households have had water tanks installed as of 2010. Additionally, in capital cities, rainwater tanks are the second most popular source of drinking water.

To start, contractors experienced in installing rain water tanks in Perth like Rainfill Tanks can help you setup all you need. First, they’ll determine whether your roof is appropriate for water collecting. Some roofs use lead-based paints and tar coatings—things you don’t want to find in your water, even if they are only for cleaning and bathing. Second, they’ll ensure that your water collecting system, specifically your gutters and pipes, are well-made. Gutters can easily get clogged by leaves and dirt so mesh covers are an excellent way to let the water in, yet keep them clean. Additionally, installation of gutter outlets ensure that no sludge builds up in your pipes to dirty up the water you collect.

Living in Perth is a great experience for many people, however there are drawbacks. One of these is the increasing lack of water. This can be surprising considering its proximity to the Indian ocean, but the capital of Western Australia is thirsty for a lot of fresh water. The combination of the dry climate and the low rain fall—Perth only receives an average 656 mm a year—can make water a scarce resource. Thankfully, there are several water conservation tips, like installing WA rainwater tanks, to help ease the burden of your household’s water demands. Efficient Plumbing One of the ideal ways to conserve water is to ensure that it’s never wasted. On average, a household can lose 40 litres of water a day to leaks alone. That daily loss can add up as the weeks and months pass by; repairing your leaky faucets and toilets help ensure that you don’t lose all that water in the first place.
