- Rainwater Tanks
In NSW in order to comply with sustainability standards of water consumption, many homes across the state will require a rainwater tank as part of the Basix certification standards. Rainwater tanks themselves are very self explanatory in that they are tanks that contain rainwater. Rainwater tanks can come in many different shapes, sizes, capacities, colours and materials to suit the premises. A rainwater tank is part of a complete rainwater collection and distribution system; when it rains then rainwater will flow into gutters that are plumbed into the tank. So then essentially the rain will run from the roof directly into the rainwater tank, which once collected can be stored until it is required. The rainwater collected in the tank can be used domestically for most water uses (although it is usually not used for drinking water but can be) such as taps, topping up a swimming pool, toilets, washing machines, and many more.
Although rainwater tanks are typically a requirement for homes in order to reduce water consumption they can also be great for saving money, as sophisticated plumbing and rainwater tank accessories will help you to manage the flow of water used in your home. Rainwater tanks come in several sizes; larger volume rainwater tanks are great for storing larger volumes of water although may not be practical depending on the size of your home or an appropriate location of your tank. At The Warehouse Co. we offer a wide collection of different rainwater tanks such as underground water tanks, slimline tanks, slimline spacesaver tanks, round tanks, squat tanks and all in varying sizes.
