Rainwater Tanks Built Tough Like Queenslanders
Rainwater is just one of our most priceless natural resources, ( specifically here in Queensland) with water collection systems being utilised for hundreds of years.
The quantity of rainwater that can be collected will vary based upon area, and the water storage process being utilised.
A vast number of rural residences are forced to source most of their water from their property, with rain water often proving to be a better quality resolution than basic household supply, or from a dam, bore or river.
A huge factor of any rain collection system is the technique whereby the water is essentially collected.
Rain Water Roof and Rain Gutter (Dry) Harvesting System
Many roofs can possibly be utilised for rain water collection, however you need to bear in mind the angle of the pipe may have to change based upon the length between the tank and the roof.
The style of water consumption will establish the necessary quality level of the collection method. A consumption example of a lower quality rainwater collection system would be for watering your yard or grassplot, or saving water for fire fighting intentions.
Even with this being a low level example, you still need to make sure the system does not involve unsealed asbestos, that vegetation is not hanging over the roof, and the utilisation of leaf screens on guttering.
For higher quality consumption demands, for example, drinking water, you should stay away from segments of roof consisting of lead flashing or asbestos sheeting, and avoid roofs painted with pre 1980 paint.
Below Ground (Wet) Water Harvesting Method
This style of water collection will be facilitated around the perimeter of your house, with the water being carried below ground via a collection of PVC pipes to your water storage unit.
When using this variety of water collection system, it is vital that the pipes are screened with a non-corrosive screen of not more than 1m aperture.
A “wet” system may be converted to a “dry” one making use of in ground water diverters which would boost the water quality and savings.
