Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is the collection of rainwater from roofs for later use. Installing a rain harvesting system to supply water for flushing toilets and washing clothes, reduces your dependence on mains water. Rainwater tanks complement mains water supply infrastructure and are underutilised if water is only used for irrigation. Maximum water savings occur when rainwater is used indoors. The Perth Waterwise Action Plan calls on everyone in the community to play a role to help secure our water future and conserve our valuable drinking water resources.

The cost of supplying mains water to the community continues to increase.  The construction and maintenance of desalination plants, pipes and treatment plants is huge, and tax and ratepayers foot the bill. If we reduce our dependence on mains water, it not only saves water but also can save taxpayer funding.

If you are planning a rainwater harvesting system, then early consultation with any of your local professional rainwater experts listed below will help establish the requirements and costs.
