3 Practices to Maintain Rainwater Quality and Tank Efficiency | Rainfill Tanks and Curved Roofing Supplies
Let’s talk about water consumption. Australia is one of the world’s driest populated places, yet we have the one of the highest water consumption per person rates in the world. Water is scarce in the country and how we conserve this essential resource is a great concern for all of us.
From Water Tank to Swimming Pools: How Far Rainwater Harvesting Can Go
Rainwater is a valuable resource, especially in the dry Western Australian region. Water is scarce, so when rain falls, residents, should take advantage and get the most out of it through rainwater harvesting. Many Australian households incorporate rainwater collection systems on their roofs, they install gutters, and they also purchase water tanks, especially for harvesting.
Harvested rainwater is ideal for various applications. From watering the garden to cleaning the home, even bathing and topping up swimming pools, rainwater has plenty of uses indeed. As a homeowner, how will you utilise this resource so you can use it in your swimming pool?
The Home Farmer: Landscaping Your Organic Garden
As delicious and as convenient as they may be, people are starting to realise how bad processed food is for the body. That long list you see at the back of the packaging has all sorts of ingredients and chemicals you can’t even pronounce – grandmothers say that’s often a bad sign. Garden farming, however, might just revolutionise how we make food, straight from the garden and onto your table.
Billions – That’s How Much Australians Can Save by Collecting Rain Water
A study once again proves how much rain collection systems can benefit the Australian society. A paper by Dr Peter Coombes of Urban Water Cycle Solutions shows that in South East Queensland alone, $3.5 billion can be saved through widespread adaptation of rainwater harvesting solutions.
Dr Coombes spoke to The Fifth Estate and explained the staggering numbers. He said that rainwater-harvesting bypasses complicated waterways and traditional water supply systems. By not relying on these expensive networks of treatment plants, collection sites and ducts, the Australian home can cut costs.
