Fact # 1: Calculating Concrete Water Tank Levels is Easy:
If you are relying on regular rainfall to assist you in filling your underground or above ground concrete water tank and use the water for regular household tasks, it is important that you know how the calculations are done.
Calculating the water that your concrete water tank receives is very easy. To get a good estimate, one should decipher the size of their roof and multiply that by the amount of rain that falls in your area on a regular basis.
Fact #2: Concrete Water Tanks Increase Property Value and Marketability of Homes
Did you know that we can use up to 1,000 litres of water per hour using garden sprinklers? Did you also know that one single household needs 10 litres a day for basic drinking, cleaning and cooking tasks? Without even realising it, we use thousands of litres doing the simplest of tasks. By installing a concrete water tank, you can not only save water, but you can also increase the value of your property.
Your environmentally conscious choices will also make your home more marketable. In 2007, the National Water Commission reported that the average water and sewer bill for a household supplied by a major water utility (such as a rainwater concrete tank) was $582. However, for those individuals using water, supplied from a non-major water utility, the cost was $722.
