Your water bill is one of those necessities that you know you're going to have to take care of each month.Unfortunately, it's also a huge expense! If you've been watching your water bills creep up month after month, there's one easy way to make a big difference in that critical bill: rainwater tanks.

How Rainwater Tanks can Save You Money

Rainwater tanks collect the rain that naturally falls around your house, shifting it through a downspout into a single tank. Just a couple centimeters of rain falling on an average roof can yield over 2,000 litres of water. Imagine how that could add up over time, and how that water can help save you money! Instead of having to pay for it, you would be able to quickly and easily collect it for free. The question is; how much rain could you catch in a year? You can work it out by clicking here. 

The next question is; how much water do you use in a year? This includes water you intentionally use and the water that is wasted through dripping taps and leaking pipework. We have found this very useful Water Usage Calculator which can calculate your annual water usage and provide you with a plan to help reduce your water consumption, save money and the environment.

How to Use Your Collected Rainwater

Now, if you are aware of the 3 major benefits of poly rainwater tanks, what are you using the water for? There are several obvious uses for your rainwater that can help you save a significant amount of money on your water utility bill, including:

  • Watering your garden, especially during the hot, dry summer months
  • Washing cars and other machinery
  • Rinsing off feet, vegetables, and other dirty things outdoors
  • Flushing toilets
  • Giving water to pets and livestock
  • Washing outdoor equipment
  • Putting out fires (both controlled bonfires and potential uncontrolled fires around your property)

If you install a water filtration system, you can put your collected rainwater to even more uses! Once it's been treated, it can be used for drinking and cooking. A simple filtration system can also make your rainwater usable for washing clothes, dishes, and you. 

Rainwater tanks have the potential to offer significant savings on your water utility bill each month. If you're ready to create the perfect water tank installation, contact us to learn more about how we can help.
