Rainwater Tanks in Perth: Common Uses Today, Possibilities Tomorrow
A lot of home builders, renovation companies, and other contractors recommend the addition of rainwater tanks in Perth homes as a sustainability best practice. These tanks are used in conjunction with other rainwater collecting equipment, including the roof, gutters, downpipes, pumps, filtration machines and distribution systems. With sturdy rainwater tanks in place, households can harvest rainwater and use it for a variety of domestic purposes. Domestic Use One rainwater tank or a set of tanks can easily be set up in the backyard or some other section of the property. The harvested water can be filtered and left non-chlorinated for use in watering the lawns or gardens, washing cars, flushing the toilet, and doing the laundry. A more thorough disinfecting treatment can be used to make the water fit for drinking. Such a system can collect and save you as much as 100,000 litres of water annually.
