Do some research and see what’s on offer before you make a decision. If you get quotes from at least three rainwater tank suppliers, you’ll find the right solution for the best price.

Try to work out which tank size will deliver the greatest savings for your home. There are a number of websites and apps that can help you find the right tank size. You’ll also need to consider your budget and how much space you have.

Tanks come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colours. You may also consider an underground tank, though these are much more expensive to buy and install. Where you can locate your water tank will influence the type of tank you can use.

Most water tanks need a pump to supply water at the same pressure as your drinking water supply. There’s a wide choice available. A little research can help ensure your rainwater supply doesn’t use more energy than necessary. When you choose a pump and where it will be located, ask about the noise it makes when running. A submersible pump is a common choice, but they can be big energy users.

In addition to choosing the location of your new tank, consider how it connects to your home’s downpipes and then to the stormwater pipes. Maximising the roof area flowing to your tank is the best way to maximise your water savings, regardless of your tank size.

If price is a limiting factor, consider a minimum tank size of 2000 litres. Make sure you can afford to have it connected to at least one regularly used internal plumbing fixture like a toilet or washing machine and to as much of your roof as possible. This will help you receive maximum value.
