Rain Water Tanks

Rainwater tanks are becoming increasingly popular for the Australian home. Installing or connecting an existing rainwater tank can seem daunting and more often than not, requires the help of a professional plumber. When you choose Blueline Plumbing & Gas, the professional and licensed plumbers can efficiently and effectively install, maintain or service any rainwater tank in your home.

We specialise in connecting any rainwater tank to your home, along with running and installing any associated pipelines that run from the tank to your home along with any water pump installation or replacement.

It is now a requirement for Australian homes to have the ability for rainwater tanks to supply water to toilets and washing machines. The plumbing experts can ensure that the rainwater is pumped and filtered into your home and distributed to the non-drinking water supply. In order for this to happen, the water tank needs the installation of a device called a rain-switch or rain-bank.

This requires modifications to the home’s internal plumbing to separate the rainwater from the fresh water through the automatic switchover. This allows for the system to switch over to the main water supply if there is not enough water in the tank to ensure that you never run out of water. The plumbing experts can also service or replace an existing rain-switch on your current rainwater tank.

What size rainwater tank should I get?

The size of your rainwater tank depends on a few factors around your home.

The first is what you intend to use the rainwater for, which varies significantly for each household. If you are going to use your rainwater to fill your pool or you are going to stock large amounts of water for your farm, you will require a bigger tank. If the rainwater is going to be used in your home simply as a replacement for fresh water in your toilet or washing machine, you will require a smaller tank.

The second factor depends on the amount of rainwater that your roof can capture. You can contact a rainwater tank specialist from Blueline Plumbing & Gas  where they can talk you through your square meter measurements and help you to determine what size tank will best suite your needs.
