Are you ready for a water tank? | Orbit Plumbing

Water is the most valuable resource known to man. Not for it’s financial value but for the ability to sustain life in all forms on our earth. Without water we would not survive so we should be treating clean drinking water as a very important asset and take good precautions to do everything in our power to preserve it and the way of life as we know it.

Our Mornington Peninsula Plumbers tell us that collecting your own water is a great way to cut your water usage down and if you only use it as a non potable source than you can actually save a lot of money and reduce the amount of water that our damns are pumping each year. The average person uses about 375 liters of water every day and surprisingly the biggest use of that water is in flushing the toilet.

Now that is not a bad thing from an Orbit plumbing Somerville perspective because at the end of the day, the more water going down your sewer system means the less likely that you will develop a blockage. The only thing is that if everyone could use tank water for this than it would be a lot more efficient.

Normally when we install a rainwater tank system our Frankston plumbers will install a system that is only used for the toilets and washing machine. This type of system is low maintenance and would probably only require a change of your pump every 8 – 10 years. If you install a potable rain water system than it becomes more complicated and requires a lot more ongoing maintenance with the filtration system.

We recommend that you get your tank system installed during good weather periods as it is one of those things that can take more time if we have to dodge the wet weather.
