Families In Auchenflower Utilise Rainwater Tanks To Save Money

13 May 2020

 by Brett Mulhall

In Australia, many families utilise a rainwater tank to reduce the cost of water month-to-month. However, while these tanks provide a range of benefits, it is important to remember to install and utilise the appropriate filters to protect you and your family. If you need a qualified plumber northside to inspect your rainwater tank, you can always rely on Aptus Plumbing & Gas to perform a timely inspection.

As our stellar Auchenflower plumbers can attest, rainwater tanks are useful for a variety of reasons. For one, it empowers Australian's to collect and manage their own water supply, which can be useful in the event of a plumbing or supply failure. Alternatively, it also allows for a welcome reduction in any home's water bill, making it a popular fixture around the country. However, if you own a rainwater tank in your home, it is critical that the tank and any associated plumbing, and any water treatment and disinfection systems are all installed, sealed, and maintained appropriately.

It is easy for harmful bacteria, viruses, and chemicals to gather in your rainwater tank. These rogue elements may come from passing animals such as birds or other animals, or it might be lead leaching off from any lead screws used to affix your gutters. Thankfully, each of these sources of contamination can be counteracted by our outstanding team of plumbers northside with the installation of a number of filtration and protection devices.

Basic water filtration can help maintain the quality of your collected rainwater. Thankfully, these filtration systems are passive, and simply work by filtering the water either as it enters or exits your water tank. However, there are different types of filtration systems that are variably effective. For instance, a polypropylene or ceramic cartridge filter will allow a large volume of water through at a high pressure, resulting in less frequent maintenance while only removing sediment and bacteria, not viruses. Alternatively, a reverse osmosis filter can be used to the majority of micro-organisms, residual chemicals, and other pollutants, but will require more constant maintenance. If you're not sure what type of water filtration would be most useful for you and you need advice from a local plumber Auchenflower or you just need to perform maintenance on your current filtration system, you can always rely on the top-notch team at Aptus Plumbing & Gas.

Rainwater tanks provide a range of benefits to homeowners around the country, but they must be properly maintained. If you would like to speak to a team of northside professionals about your rainwater tank, call Aptus Plumbing & Gas on 07 3205 1991.
