Make It Rain in Your Home (And Save More on Water Bills)

There are plenty of good reasons for homeowners (such as yourself) to consider a rainwater tank on your property. Since majority of Australia’s urban areas depend on metered water supplies, homeowners frequently complain about the rising costs of water.

Rather than endure expensive bills, it makes sense to invest in a rainwater tank, instead.

Apart from adding value to your home, domestic water tanks also transform your home into an environment-friendly and sustainable haven. Here are three things you can do with the rainwater which these tanks collect and store:

Replenish Your Greenery

For some Australian households, vegetable garden maintenance requires 50% of their water systems’ supply. If your home uses metered water, maintaining garden beds and growing your own vegetables is costly. Larger gardens require more water; if you fail to water the beds, even if only for a few days, you can expect your crops to do poorly.

A rainwater tank is a helpful and cost efficient addition to your garden. Not to mention, it is also an ecologically sound alternative to using a supply of water from the tap. If you plan on using rain for the garden, a larger tank is your new best friend. Bigger storage tanks keep more than enough water to sustain the garden throughout dry periods.

Wash Soiled Clothes

Initially, the idea of using rainwater to wash dirty laundry may seem off-putting, for some. But rainwater actually makes laundry day more efficient and also saves you more money. Think about it: a number of households deal with five to six loads of washing per week. Rainwater spares you from costly expenses on account of piles of soiled clothes.

Wash your clothes effectively and economically by connecting the rainwater tank to the washing machine. Also, keep in mind that 4-star machines use only 47 litres per load, so do be careful how much rainwater you put in, per load.

Fill Up the Toilet

If you wish to maximise your rainwater tank’s value, connect it to your home’s plumbing system. Doing so makes the most out of the tank’s capability, especially during the winter months. When you connect the tank to your plumbing system, expect bigger water savings, in the long run.

Rainwater is a sensible solution to everyday needs, around the home. It is a smart money saver for most homeowners. It is also a sustainable, viable option for those who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Do not miss out on this opportunity.
