Rainwater harvesting is becoming a popular choice with many commercial businesses and schools across Auckland, as installing a rainwater tank is not only environmentally conscious, it is cost-effective. Commercial water tank installations are customisable and can be tailored to the specific needs of your business and property. We also install residential rainwater tanks across Auckland.
Water is a precious natural resource and currently, Auckland is facing a water crisis. Stage One Water Restrictions are in place and Aucklanders are all being asked to do their bit to conserve as much water as possible. We are facing a potentially very dry rest of the year and we urgently need to focus on alternative ways of utilising water and being more vigilant about how we save water. If we don’t, we face being in a worse position during the drier summer months, which could lead to increased water restrictions and rising prices.
Water tanks are strong, durable, and UV resistant. They are built to last for years to come and provide an economic, long-term solution for rainwater collection. Reduce your water usage AND your water bill by taking advantage of rainwater and installing a water retention tank at your business or commercial property.
Collecting rainwater has never been so easy, with rainwater tanks available in a wide range of colours, designs, models, and sizes. Rain tank installations are no longer constrained to rural spaces. More and more urban businesses are making use of rainwater and with so many sizes available, limited space is not an issue. Smaller tanks and slimline models are great for simple uses, such as collecting water for irrigation and sprinkler systems for lawns, gardens, and sports fields.
However, harvesting rainwater isn’t just about having a little extra water to keep the lawns green. According to Watercare, the average Aucklander typically uses between 140 and 175 litres of water per day, with approximately 18% of that allocated to toilets. Commercial rainwater harvesting systems enable water collection for waste water and grey water use as well. Our expert team of licensed plumbers are able to fit valves on your tank to connect it to mains pressure pumps. This means that you can use rainwater for toilets or laundries when the tank is full but will automatically be converted to metered water should your tank run dry.
Some water tanks are also suitable for potable drinking water. They inhibit algae growth and do not taint the taste of water. These tanks are made from food grade approved materials and are perfectly safe for drinking water – just another way you can save by making the most of collecting rainwater.
