Water Tanks

We all know that water is one of the most precious things that we have and we also know that it can get pretty scarce at times and as a result rain water tanks have now become compulsory in new built homes in most states across Australia.


Architect Sally Dominguez wanted to do her bit for sustainability and didn’t have space for a traditional tank so she designed one herself. The difference between the waterHOG and a lot of other tanks is that it’s small in size but the designed so that you can slot as many of the tanks together as you need or have space for. It can go up against a wall; it can go under a deck, under the ground, down in the basement, upright or lying down. $260

TankMaster Donut and Bagel Underground

As the name suggests these tanks need to go underground. The Donut shape holds 3000 litres and costs $2775. The Bagel holds 5000 litres and costs $3873. This design is great if you want your tank out of sight, but it is hard to detect any leaks or make any repairs once it’s installed.

So if you got a house and use water, it’s time to take in a tank. You’ll be helping to create a sustainable future and your water bills will be way down. You know councils give rebates of up to $600.
