Make use of every precious drop
There’s something special about using rainwater around the home. Rainwater is free and there are no restrictions on when or where you can use it. By making the most of every precious drop you can save money on water bills at the same time.
It’s possible to start small with one rainwater tank and then add another later. You can start with a tank simply for the garden, then stage it so that you make rainwater connections to the house as you can afford them.
Rainwater can potentially be used for all purposes you use water for around the home. It can be collected off surfaces outside the home as stormwater, and directed to the garden where it can soak into the soil. The limits on what you use it for will depend on how much you have available and on the quality of the rainwater.
