With Perth experiencing 674.4 millilitres of rainfall in 2014, there’s great scope for homeowners and businesses to take a greener approach to everyday living. Through the use of a rainwater tank, it’s possible to maintain a garden, wash clothes and do the dishes, while making a positive contribution to the environment.
How homeowners in Western Australia can benefit from a rain tank
When water levels in Australia’s dams are low and restrictions are in place, prolonged use can damage water bays, the economy and the environment. Fortunately, homeowners can reduce their use through the installation of a rainwater tank.
Using the rainwater collected, homeowners can water their gardens during periods of drought, reduce their water bills, flush their toilets, wash their clothes and reduce the risk of contaminants in the waterways.
