Explaining the benefits of a rainwater tank
How do rainwater tanks work?
When it rains the roof of the house becomes the water catchment area. The gutters on the roof funnel rainwater into the pipes, which connect the gutters to the water tanks. Depending on the property, a water tank can either be placed on the ground, below or even be elevated above the ground on a stand or platform.
Is it safe to drink water from a rainwater tank?
Generally yes. A properly maintained rainwater tank can provide good quality drinking water. Providing the rainwater is clear, has little taste or smell and is from a well-maintained water catchment system it is probably safe and unlikely to cause any illness for most users.
Are plastic rainwater tanks safe?
Steel tanks are galvanised with a zinc wall which, while not a health risk, can affect the taste of drinking water. Plastic tanks are manufactured from food-grade safe, BPA-free polyethylene plastic so they're 100% safe for storing drinking water.
Are rainwater tanks worth it?
Large rainwater tanks may seem expensive to install, but they last a long time. All the water you collect once installed is also free to use – so you can save money in the long term. Every time the price of your mains water supply increase, you will save even more with a rainwater system.
