Rainwater Tanks

There are many places in the world where rainwater is scarce. Unfortunately, as populations continue to increase - and with them water usage - there’s no doubt that a severe water shortage is well on its way. Rainwater tanks are probably one of the best solutions to the world’s water shortage crisis. In countries such as Australia, where water scarcity is a large problem, rainwater tanks help to solve this problem through capturing and storing rainwater.

Let’s face it; people enjoy their swimming pools, golf course experiences and their beautiful gardens, all non-potable uses. However, many environmentalists, and much of the general public would consider all of those luxuries a waste of water. Water is also used to meet many other human needs, such as drinking, cooking, and bathing, potable use. Yet water used for irrigation purposes accounts for more than of home water use, and it is considered the largest contributing factor in the water shortage crisis.

Rainwater Tanks: A Solution to the Water Shortage Crisis

If there is a solution to the rainwater crisis, it is at least partially through the usage of rainwater tanks for rainwater collection. The collection and storage of rainwater is a process that can allow us to live a greener, and freer existence by recapturing rainwater with rainwater tanks for both potable and non-potable use.

Small scale rainwater harvesting is a sustainable solution to the global water crisis. Using rainwater tanks is becoming increasingly popular in the developed world, in both urban and rural settings. Without a doubt, the solution to the rainwater crisis is at least partially through the use of rainwater tanks, and other water storage facilities.

Water harvested via rainwater tanks is a sustainable answer for addressing the world's current water crisis. There are two main areas that recaptured rainwater from tanks can be used, which are:

  • Potable use – Safe for humans to drink
  • Non-potable use – Not drinking quality water, but can still be used for purposes such as irrigation, feeding livestock, etc.

What Is A Rainwater Tank?

Rainwater Tanks Make it Easier To Conserve Water

Rainwater tanks are probably one of the easiest to ways to conserve rainwater at home. A rainwater tank is a tank used to store water that comes from the runoff of rain. Rainwater tanks can capture and store water for either potable or non-potable uses. It is estimated that in some areas, the water captured via rainwater tanks can save up to 40% of total water use.

Water Harvesting Through Rainwater Tanks Is Environmentally Conscious

Rainwater harvesting is ever more important in this environmentally conscious world. Global warming has raised many problems; one of them is water scarcit and there are various reasons why harvesting water through rainwater tanks has become so essential to the health of the environment. Harvesting water through rainwater tanks is the perfect solution to your tightening water restrictions.

What are the Uses for Rainwater Tanks?

Rainwater Tanks Can Be Located Anywhere

Rainwater tanks can be located either above or below ground. Water tanks have consistently proven themselves valuable, because they offer a means of storing rainwater to meet the demands of daily water consumption, be it for potable or other non-potable water needs.

Rainwater used for non-potable use is environmentally friendly because nothing has to be done to treat the water before its use. Some common non-potable captured rainwater uses are for:

  • Irrigation
  • Swimming pools
  • Toilets
  • Clothes Washing

Whatever rainwater you collect in your tanks can also be used for drinking (potable use), but it is recommended that the water used is filtered first, especially if you are living in an urban area. Water from tanks is less salty, can free of chlorine and fluoride and some people even say, tastes better than normal tap water.

When you make the decision to use rainwater, not only are you taking pressure off the water grid, but also you can expect to see considerable savings on your water usage bill. Most of the water that we use goes to cleaning clothes, washing our cars, watering our gardens, irrigation and many other things. We use only a very small portion of drinking water comparatively. Even if you only use water for a few daily items, you will still notice differences to the amount of your overall water consumption with the installation of a water tank.

People often choose to buy rainwater tanks after performing a cost benefit analysis. However, because there are so many different types of rainwater tank options available in the marketplace, it can get very confusing.

As with anything, you should understand what tools are best available to you, before making a decision. Whilst harvesting rainwater in tanks can appear to be simple, without understanding what types of rainwater tanks are available to you, it can be difficult to achieve the maximum benefit of using rainwater tanks for water conservation.

What are the Types of Rainwater Tanks?

Rainwater tanks are available in a large variety of shapes and sizes. Everyone's rainwater harvesting circumstances are different, so it would make sense for there to be a large range of tanks available for a range of rainwater storage solutions. Because rainwater tanks come in such a wide variety, the options for landowners are in great supply. There are rainwater tanks for those with limited space such as slimline tanks, and for people with more availale space, larger round shaped tanks can be the best option.

When shopping for a rainwater tank, you need to determine where the tank will be placed in relation to where it is used on the property.

Slimline Rainwater Tanks

– Slimline rainwater tanks are tough, compact, and small enough that they can be easily installed pretty much anywhere around a house with minimal space requirements. Slimline rainwater tanks are made to have enough capacity to store enough water to cover that of a small yard or garden, where the space is small enough that there would be no room for a round or other rainwater tanks. These slimline tanks can be installed in a small space and are generally made of high quality material so they are built to last.

Round Rainwater Tanks

– Round rainwater tanks are available in variety of sizes and are generally less expensive than any other rainwater storage solution. Round Tanks can be purchased in both Polyethylene or Steel. tahnks to it circular shape, the stress and pressure generated by the water is distributed equally in all directions. If the rainwater tanks were made in a more rectangular or square shape, the stress on the corners of the tanks would likely be too high, causing the tanks to rupture, or burst.

Polyethylene Rainwater Tanks

- Polyethylene water tanks are also known as a plastic tanks, and are made up of polyethylene - which makes them durable for many years. The polyethylene coating makes the poly rainwater tank near unbreakable and thanks to being made of a food grade plastic, they are very easy to clean and are reasonably low maintenance. Plastic rainwater tanks are often used on farms and by commercial fertilizer and pesticide companies.

Plastic rainwater tanks are popular for several reasons:

  • Availability
  • Cost
  • Easy to Clean
  • Flexibility in Design
  • Rust Resistant
  • Can Take High Impact
  • Large Capacity tanks allow growers to purchase and store greater quantities of product.

Under Deck Rainwater Tanks

- These storage options are ideal if you wish to store large quantities of rainwater out of sight, and without taking up any space.

Features of Rainwater Tanks

Rainwater tanks play a vital role in rainwater harvesting. The main features of rainwater conservation are as follows:

  • With treatment, or an appropriate liner, rainwater tanks can be serve as the main source of drinking water
  • Captured rainwater is useful in several applications such as irrigation, refilling aquifers, feeding livestock, etc.
  • It is one of the most economically and ecologically friendly ways of capturing water for both drinking and other applications

Benefits of Rainwater Tanks

There are an enormous amount of benefits of using rainwater tanks, but to keep things simple rainwater tanks:

  • Rainwater tanks can be a solution to various water supply issues
  • Rainwater tanks, through capturing storm water runoff can reduce soil erosion
  • Rainwater tanks, especially steel water tanks, are generally durable enough to survive various natural disasters and other major calamities
  • Rainwater tanks can generally protect the groundwater from being contaminated
  • Rainwater tanks can reduce water utility bills

Rainwater Tanks: The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Solution to Avert the Rainwater Crisis.

Using rainwater tanks to harvest water, no matter how large or small, is a step in the right direction in not only conserving water, but an even greater step in saving the environment. Rainwater tanks: Save money. Save the environment. Save the planet.
