It is said that about half of the water used in an average home in Perth or anywhere else in Western Australia ends up as waste water. Considering problems like droughts and climate change that are threatening the state’s water supply, this is a huge concern. One of the most viable solutions to this issue is rainwater harvesting.
According to the Australian Department of Health, 19 per cent of households across the nation use rainfall collected in their water tanks for various applications. While this practice in itself is already saving precious water, there are other ways to further maximise the usage of rainwater in your home.
