When you are thinking about getting a water tank, whether a poly or steel tank, sometimes it’s hard to find clear, easy to understand information which will give you enough information to make a decision.

Here is a practical short video produced by the Institute for Sustainable Futures and the Dusseldorp Skills Forum, which contains excellent information and tips on how to design and install an effective rainwater harvesting system.

This is the first in a series of small videos that we will be posting.  Part 1 looks at where rainwater can be used, and includes information on selecting the right rainwater system for the household's needs.



WaterStore can also give you lots of good advice when selecting a rainwater system, please contact us for a free quote and further information.

Next week we will post Part 2, which looks at getting the water from the roof to your poly or steel water tank, including useful information on roofs, gutters/downpipes and first-flush diverters.
