Rainwater tank installation and maintenance

Proper installation and regular maintenance are essential to ensure the efficiency and longevity of your water tank. Hiring a professional plumbing service for installation is recommended to ensure proper positioning and connection to your property’s gutter system.

Routine maintenance tasks include:

  • Regularly checking for leaks and repairing any damages promptly.
  • Cleaning the gutters and downpipes to prevent debris from entering the tank.
  • Flushing and cleaning the tank periodically to remove sediment buildup.

Investing in a water tank is a wise decision for any property looking to embrace water conservation and sustainable practices. We hope this comprehensive guide will provide you with valuable insights into the different types of water tanks available, their benefits, installation, and maintenance.

Types of water tanks

1. Polyethylene Water Tanks

Polyethylene water tanks are one of the most popular choices due to their affordability, durability, and lightweight nature. They come in various sizes and shapes, making them versatile for both above-ground and underground installations.

2. Steel Water Tanks

Steel water tanks offer exceptional strength and longevity, making them suitable for larger water storage needs. They are often used for industrial and agricultural purposes but can also be ideal for residential properties.

3. Concrete Water Tanks

Concrete water tanks are sturdy and capable of storing significant volumes of water. They are commonly used for underground installations and are favoured for their fire-resistant properties.

4. Fibreglass Water Tanks

Fibreglass water tanks are corrosion-resistant and suitable for storing potable water. They are a popular choice for commercial and residential applications, especially in areas with harsh environmental conditions.

Benefits of water tanks

1. Water conservation

Collecting rainwater in water tanks allows you to utilize a free and abundant natural resource, reducing the demand for mains water and promoting water conservation.

2. Cost savings

By harvesting rainwater, you can significantly reduce your water bills and save money in the long run, especially in regions where water charges are high.

3. Sustainable living

Using rainwater for non-potable purposes such as gardening, laundry, and toilet flushing contributes to sustainable living practices and reduces the environmental impact.

4. Emergency backup supply

Having a water tank as an emergency backup supply ensures you have access to water during periods of water restrictions or disruptions in the mains supply.

At Activ Plumbing Solutions, we are dedicated to providing top-notch plumbing services, including water tank installation, repair, and maintenance.
