Rainwater Tanks Sydney, NSW

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.
