Options Available for Rainwater Tanks

Posted on

Most homeowners in Australia know the importance of water conservation. As such, residences will typically look for different solutions to help them try to make the most of the water that is available to them. One of the popular alternatives that people choose is opting for rainwater tanks. However, not many people know that there are different types of tanks that you can opt for depending on your residence as well as personal preference. Knowing the options that are available to you makes it easier for you to make a decision that would best cater to your needs. Here are some of the options available when selecting rainwater tanks.

Slimline rainwater tanks

This type of rainwater tank is best suited for homeowners who have limited space on their premises. If you do not have a large yard, a conventional round water tank may be too big for it and will take up all your outdoor space. If you were looking for something that can easily be accommodated between tight spaces without having to compromise on storage capacity, then slimline tanks would be your best bet. These rainwater tanks are made from polyethylene material that is ultra violet stable. This means it will not be affected by constant exposure to UV rays from the sun; thus, the water collected will remain safe for consumption. They also come in an array of colours and a range of sizes, ensuring that any homeowner can find a slimline tank that will be aesthetically appealing to them.

Round rainwater tanks

These are the traditional rainwater tanks that you will find in the market. As their name suggests, they are cylindrical and can be employed for both domestic as well as commercial use. Round rainwater tanks tend to be made from sturdy polyethylene and are designed to endure a range of conditions. Therefore, they can be installed in locations prone to extreme weather, as they will be able to bear the brunt of exposure to the elements. It should be noted, though, that although these tanks come in a range of sizes, they are best suited for residences with ample outdoor space to accommodate them.

Decpod under deck rainwater tanks

This type of rainwater tank is installed underground. This makes them a convenient option for individuals who would not want a tank weight on their yard or on their roof. They require minimal maintenance since they are not exposed to any risk of damage.
