Australian Rain Water Tanks: Preserving Our Natural Resources

By EugeneYeng Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

With the legislation in place in Australia, many residents are looking for new ways to conserve water and make the most of natural rain fall to help maintain their property or reduce the need for municipal or well water supplies. Australian rain water tanks are proving quite useful as water shortages continue to be reported not only in Australia, but across the globe. When the rainy season sets in, wouldn’t it be great to have the facilities to capture and save the water, giving you access to an extra supply cache when a drought hits? This is the driving force behind the spike in water tank popularity, and to help you get a better idea of how they work and the simplicity of implementation, we have outlined a few basic concepts that are important to understand when you are considering adding an element of self-sufficiency to your property.

Private or Commercial Use?

The uses of your rain water tanks will play heavily into the design or material you choose when purchasing one. If the tank will be used primarily for personal water consumption, then it is likely that the size can be much smaller than tanks that would see more commercial deployment. When you have an Australian rain water tank on your property, you can use the cached rain for garden maintenance, fire safety, or washing the family vehicles. Further, the right tank can be color-matched to your home, eliminating any concerns about the tank itself being an eyesore on the property!

Poly Tanks

If placing your tank above ground is causing you to hesitate, know that polyethylene, or simply poly tanks can be utilized above or below ground. They are incredibly easy to install because they are lightweight and the water stored in them can be used for drinking water, which adds a nice bonus when considering the reduction of water allowances across Australia.

Concrete Tanks

Often spoken of as “underground tanks”, concrete rain water tanks are generally placed underground and then covered with a load bearing that ensures the stabilization of the ground above it. These tanks can last for quite some time, and though they excel at endurance, can be costly to maintain should something go awry.

Slimline Tanks

Slimline tanks have created a buzz given the design and appearance of the holding cache. They are created specifically for properties that are low on space. You can install one of these fully functional rainwater tanks against the outer wall of your home and because you can select the color, it will often go completely unnoticed to passerby. While functionality is always the key with water tanks, remember that it’s always an added bonus when you can install a holding tank that is barely visible without having to place it underground.

Water conservation will be a continued theme of the coming generation, and since regulations continue to restrict the use of municipal water for “frivolous” uses like washing the family car, it has become important that residents take matters into their own hands. By capturing rainfall in Australian water tanks, a property owner can have access to a vast amount of clean, usable water without having to eliminate or change their water use practices. Conservation requires a certain element of responsibility, so why not help the national cause of preservation while making things a bit easier on yourself? Remember the points outlined above and keep the design options in mind, and you will increase your chances of installing the perfect cache for your personal or commercial needs, leaving you with a sense of environmental contribution and enough water to maintain your property.
