Preserve Water in Best Water Tanks


Drinking Water TanksThere was a time – not that long ago – when almost every house had its own water tank and harvesting rainwater was something that just happened during the course of life, not a big environmental event. But as more and more people moved into towns and cities, we started using fresh town water and the tanks began to disappear from view.

But in this time of drought when green citizens are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, water tanks have once again become a household fixture – and for more than just environmental reasons. A water tank is good for the environment, yes, but is also good for your lifestyle and your hip pocket. Here are some good reasons to install a water tank at your home or business:

1. Save water

Water shortages resulting from the drought have made it more important than ever to conserve the water we have. Australia receives the least rainfall of all inhabited continents and water is the most valuable resource we have – we need it to live!

2. Keep town drinking water for drinking

Instead of wasting fresh drinkable water on the garden, to wash the car or flush the toilet, installing a tank means less precious drinking water will be lost through activities such as these, and more will be available for us to drink.

3. Beat water restrictions

Water restrictions have been imposed across Australia, limiting the amount of water used for non-essential activities. A water tank will give you the freedom to use your own collected water without having to tap into the town supply. This means you can choose to use your water for a greener lawn, cleaner car or to fill up the kid’s paddling pool when it’s hot.

4. Save money on your initial purchase

The global financial crisis has made it more important than ever to be careful with money and buying a water tank is no different. There are still generous local and state government rebates available on water tank purchases, especially on large water tanks, or those that are plumbed into your toilet or laundry for internal use.

5. Save money in the future

Once the initial expense of the water tank has been borne, you can save money on all future water bills. As our population grows and water becomes more scarce, it is probable that the cost of water will rise, so you can be protected from these costs by collecting your own water.

6. Collect your own drinking water

If you’re worried about chemicals added to the town water supply, a water tank could be the solution for you. Forget about buying expensive bottled water, you can collect your own fresh water for drinking purposes in a tank.

7. Make a statement

Instead of the old rusty corrugated iron tanks, modern water tanks come in a variety of colours, styles, sizes and materials to suit you.

Tankworx offers Ecosac water storage bladders, Colorbond aquaplate steel tanks, Poly tanks and concrete tanks. The range includes fashionable colours to suit every dwelling, such as Stone Grey, Eucalypt green, Heritage Red and Pale Terracotta. From large farm-size water storage to slim-line, there is a water tank to suit everyone who wants to save water.
