Water tanks increase the value of properties in South Africa

Professionally installed water tanks will always increase the value and/or desirability of a property in South Africa.

JoJo domestic water tanks

South Africa is a water scarce nation with an average annual rainfall below the global average. South Africa’s freshwater resources are under immense pressure from the demand of 50 million+ citizens, especially in urban and peri-urban areas where industry also competes for scarce water reserves.

This is a reason why a property, for instance, a house in a suburb that has water tanks installed, will have the edge over a similar property without water tanks.

Whether the water tanks are for rainwater harvesting, storing municipal water or for storing water from a private borehole, buyers (and renters) will be attracted to properties that have a degree of water self-sufficiency and/or water storage capability.

With water supply cuts and ever-increasing phenomenon in may South African towns and cities, having reserve water stored in water tanks makes water outages less of an inconvenience. Properties with professional, integrated rainwater harvesting systems and rainwater tanks are desirable to many property buyers. If underground water tanks have been properly installed under driveways or landscaped areas, these will be a very big plus when selling the property – installing these tanks is not easy or quick so buyers will appreciate the fact that they are spared the hassle and expense.

Residential properties are not the only types of properties whose value will be increased by the presence of water storage facilities. Business buildings, factories, recreational centres and agricultural property values will all benefit. So while a rainwater system may be fairly costly in the short term, in the long term, apart from saving on water bills, it will increase the property value, should the property be put on the market.

There are many options as to type, size and reason for installing a water tank or water tanks but be sure to protect your investment by installing high quality water tanks that have a long service life.
