Rainwater Harvesting Tanks

Leaflet - Water Tanks. 

With water becoming an increasingly costly and regulated commodity, rainwater harvesting is now an attractive option for people wishing to save both money and our precious water resources. 

And what better way to save resources than by using the rain that falls on a property’s roof and storing it in a Tuffa Rainwater Tank; a Tuffa "Big Butt"?

Rainwater is captured from the roof(s) and brought to a central point via normal guttering and downpipes, to a storage tank known as a rainwater harvesting tank, where it can be filtered on entry. A highly efficient and reliable submersible pump delivers the water to a service on demand.

The types of rainwater harvesting systems we offer include:

  • Domestic systems, either direct or indirect (gravity/header tank versions), including potable upgrades where appropriate
  • Garden/irrigation systems, both above ground and underground
  • Commercial systems (bespoke)

 Above Ground Systems

No room to dig a hole? These kits, from 1,350 litres to 20,500 litres, are used above ground and incredibly versatile. They come with the necessary components to collect, filter, store and pump the rainwater to where you want it; whether that is in a plastic tank or a huge steel tank, suitable for agricultural use.

Harvesting Rainwater for Domestic Uses

Rainwater harvesting simply collects the rain that falls on roofs before storing it in a tank until needed. When required, the water is then pumped to the point of use.

Recently, water demand has started to exceed supply and localised flooding has become an issue.

Industry experts are now recognising the important role that rainwater harvesting (also known as rainwater recycling) plays in alleviating both of these problems. Strategic planners now look to reduce the amount of water consumption per head going forward, and solutions such as rainwater harvesting will play a critical role.

Rainwater Harvesting Tanks Overview

The size of the storage tank is determined by considering the amount of water available for storage (a function of roof size and average local rainfall), and the amount of water likely to be used (a function of building occupancy and purpose). It is very important not to oversize the rainwater tank too much, as this may result in a quality of water that is lower than expected.
