Great reasons to install rain water tanks this summer

In South Africa, good rains have begun falling over most parts of the country – businesses and home-owners should capitalise on harvesting this free source of unpolluted water from suitable rooftops and store it in water tanks.

Here are some great reasons to install water tanks for storing harvested rainwater:

  • Rainwater is FREE! Who doesn’t like free stuff? As water tariffs in South Africa continue to rise, many will turn to rainwater harvesting as a free source of water.
  • Rainwater is naturally pure and unpolluted, unlike so many sources of water in South Africa. If you intend drinking rainwater, it is still recommended that it be appropriately filtered.
  • Municipal water may be ‘safe’ to drink but all those chemicals such as chlorine that are used to kill micro-organisms (and they don’t always kill them all!) are not very good for humans (or plants and animals for that matter) over the long term.
  • Bathing in rainwater must be experienced to be appreciated, the benefits of ‘soft’ rainwater for hair are well known.
  • Irrigating your lawn and garden with rainwater is far healthier for plants than chemical-laden municipal water. Growth rate and general health of plants watered with rainwater have been shown to be much better than those watered with treated municipal water.
  • Fill your swimming pool up with rainwater – you’ll save on your water bills.
  • Rainwater harvesting, especially in urban areas, is good for the environment – collecting and storing rainwater in water tanks on the property reduces storm-water run-off which in turn reduces overloading local waterways and reduces water pollution too (think of all the oil, fuel, chemicals and other things that are swept off the impermeable urban surfaces and sent down the stormwater drains).
  • Water tanks with a reserve of rainwater can be used during water supply cuts – a frequent occurrence in some South African towns and cities.
  • Rainwater tanks can be kept full as a reserve for fire-fighting purposes.
  • Water tanks and rainwater harvesting systems increase the value of any property, especially in South Africa where water issues are increasingly serious.
