Perth Rainwater Tanks: Do the Math, Figure Out the Correct Capacity
Given the dry climate and sweltering temperatures typical of summertime in the region, it comes as no surprise that households in Western Australia, particularly in Perth, consume millions of litres of water every day whenever they shower. About 25 percent of household water, in fact, goes to showers or baths, according to a Water Corporation spokesman interviewed by WAtoday. In this drying climate, authorities urge the public to conserve water, whether by replacing inefficient showerheads or shortening the daily shower time to four minutes. It would also make sense to invest in sustainable and long-term solutions that address water shortage issues.
