Water Tanks

Connecting a water tank to the down spouts of your home's guttering system is one of the easiest ways to contribute to sustainable living.


New Regulations

   * In Canberra in the ACT, new developments must include a water tank.
   * In Sydney and NSW, new building regulations call for a 40% reduction in mains water usage.
   * In Victoria, new homes will have to be 5-star standard, and must install either a solar HWS, or a water tank.
