POLY WATER TANKS
Poly rainwater tanks have become the most popular rainwater storage tanks sold in Australia today. The move towards poly rainwater tanks has been due to several contributing factors. The main reasons for the increased popularity for the poly rainwater tanks are their inherent resistance to corrosion and resulting longer life.
Poly rainwater tanks are available in a large range of sizes, shapes and capacity, ranging from small tanks holding 100 litres to poly water tanks greater with capacities of up to 45,000 litres.
Slimline Tanks Traditional corrugated and modern flat sided designs. Ideal for side paths or areas with narrow access. Available sizes of 500 – 2,500 litres. Tanks can be linked to achieve greater storage capacity.
Round Poly Water Tanks Traditional round tank design for small to large scale water harvesting. Tanks can be installed on a crusher dust or reinforced concrete slab. Available sizes of 500 – 27,000 litres.
Large Round Poly Water Tanks Designed for high volume water harvesting with capacities ranging from 35,000 to 50,000 litres.
WATER SAVING REBATES AND ELIGIBILITY
The Eurobodalla Council and the NSW Government offer a variety of rebates and incentives aimed at conserving water and energy to help reduce your carbon footprint1. Specifically, the Eurobodalla Council provides a showerhead exchange program where residents can bring in old, inefficient showerheads and exchange them for a high-quality 3-star WELS rated water-efficient showerhead if the property is within the Eurobodalla Shire and connected to the council’s water mains system2.
Additionally, for appliances, the council offers rebates to Eurobodalla water customers on washing machines that are WELS-rated 4.5 stars or above, as well as for replacing single flush toilets with 4-star WELS-rated dual flush toilets. These rebates are not applicable if they are part of BASIX development requirements. The council also encourages the investment in rainwater tanks3.
For specific details on water tank rebates in the Eurobodalla Shire, it would be advisable to directly consult with the Eurobodalla Council or the relevant NSW government departments as these rebates can be subject to change and may have specific eligibility requirements that need to be met.
From 15 January 2010, the total NSW Home Saver Rebates a household can receive must not exceed $1500 per property.
COLORBOND WATER TANKS
Colorbond steel is a popular material for water tanks in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, renowned for its durability, versatility, and range of colours. These tanks are made from high-quality steel with a bonded paint finish that resists the harsh Australian weather, making them ideal for both residential and commercial use. The steel’s coating technology offers excellent resistance to corrosion and damage, ensuring the longevity of the tank. Colorbond water tanks are also eco-friendly as they are fully recyclable, and the steel’s thermal efficiency can help in maintaining the water temperature. They are a stylish and practical choice for rainwater collection and storage, aligning well with modern building designs and sustainability standards.
