Some excellent reasons to install rain water tanks and start harvesting rainwater – a free resource. In South Africa, properties with rainwater harvesting systems and water tanks installed will ensure a higher property value too.
MAIN BENEFITS OF RAINWATER HARVESTING
Significant economic, social and environmental benefits can be achieved by using rainwater.
By using Rainwater Harvesting systems 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.
Rainwater falls for free – once you have installed a rain harvesting system, 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.
Some Australian State Governments have introduced legislation mandating new standards of energy and water efficiency ratings that must be incorporated into new dwellings. Local administrators have also introduced guidelines for safe water usage systems. Rain Harvesting Pty Ltd has worked in conjunction with authorities to establish these guidelines and has developed a range of patented products that can be used in conjunction with roofing, gutters, downpipes and rainwater tanks to provide complete rainwater solutions.

In some suburbs, new houses are now required to install a rainwater tank of a certain capacity
