There are many good reasons to install rain water tanks; the article below outlines the main ones. Rainwater harvesting is an ancient practice that was a necessity for many; in the future (and even now) it is increasingly moving from an optional activity to a necessary way of obtaining good, clean water.
Significant economic, social and environmental benefits can be achieved by using rainwater.
By using rainwater harvesting systems and rain water tanks to supply water for some, or indeed all of our requirements, you can reduce your dependence on mains water. Our water supplies are falling and water restrictions are in place in many communities to reduce our overall water usage and protect our supplies.
There is no better quality water available naturally than rainwater. Some say there are health benefits to using rainwater which is not treated with chemicals like our mains water is (chlorine is just one of the harmful chemicals found in municipal water).
Rainwater falls for free – once you have installed a rain harvesting system and water tanks, you use less mains water and can reduce your water bills. Governments and Water Boards will increase water prices as they look to recover the true costs of providing water to the community.
The cost to the community to supply mains or reticulated water services is becoming more expensive every year. The construction of dams, pipes and treatment plants is huge and ultimately as tax and rate-payers, we foot this cost.
Rainwater harvesting reduces the damage to our creeks, water habitats and organisms caused by stormwater runoff.
