Having an independent water supply on your residential property gives you the freedom to use water as you wish, without restriction. It can also help you to save money on your water rates, and make the most of a free natural resource.
You can use your collected water to: Water the garden. Store water from the wetter months for use over summer where water restrictions are in place. Wash the car. Rainwater contains very little limescale so will be gentle on your car and reduce watermarks. Back-up water supply. Ideal for use in emergency situations. *Not suitable for use as drinking water.
Additional setup to flush the toilet (up to 12L per flush) and wash your clothes (up to 150L per load) can lead to major water savings.
