As a homeowner you will want to protect your property as much as possible. It’s a major investment you’re committed to for decades.

Adding a rainwater tank may not at first seem like a major improvement, but we at Nudge’s Plumbing know how much value an efficient rainwater tank can bring. Because of that, we would like to point out some of the added benefits you can get by installing these tanks.

Here are some surprising ways it will protect your property!

  • The weather is becoming more and more unpredictable. Seasons we thought were set are suddenly changing. Extreme weather is becoming more and more frequent. One moment rain storms, the next, prolonged drought. To add more stability to your water supply, you might consider getting a rainwater tank.
  • One of the obvious benefits, of course, is that you have your own supply of water. You don’t have to rely on the mains supply anymore. 
  • Being connected to the mains supply means that you are at the mercy of others for all your water needs. With one of these tanks on your property you can avoid water restrictions or rationing and hosepipe bans.
  • With a tank connected to your house system you can use the collected water to avoid water scarcity. Use it for personal hygiene, doing laundry, washing the car, topping up your pool or even as drinking water, if it is properly filtered.
  • A tank will also cut down on your utility bills over time.
  • Keen gardeners will always be able to water their plants and flowers. A fresh, flowering garden will always give your property curb appeal.
  • Rainwater tanks are really necessity in areas of little rainfall, but many people all over are turning to them as part of a go-greener lifestyle. Water conservation does help the environment.
  • Those that want to take environmental consciousness that one step further and grow your own veggies, a tank for rainwater is a must.
  • If you have the opposite problem and live in an area prone to storms or flooding, a retention tank will help drain off excess rainwater from your property. These are sunk into the ground and aren’t seen. The collected water slowly drains off into the local authority supply or you can use the water yourself.

At Nudge’s Plumbing we have been installing rainwater tanks for over ten years and can attest to the added value a rainwater tank gives your property. Not only in terms of house market prices, but also peace of mind, knowing your water supply is safe.
