Living on the driest continent on earth, we all know the importance of ‘going green’ and doing our bit for the environment. One simple way we can all help is to reduce the strain on our waterways. How do we do this? By installing a rainwater tank for your home.

A rainwater tank can save up to 100,000 litres of water a year in an average home and is ideal for use both inside and outside your house. It can be used to can be used to wash the dishes, fill a swimming pool, run a bath or wash the car.

STRATCO has designed rainwater tanks with practicality and innovation in mind. Their Aqua-Barrel® Tank is a strong, modern tank with a slim design and stylish rounded curves. Designed to sit closely against an existing wall, the slim 560mm width makes it ideal for installation under eaves and other narrow spaces.

The Aqua-Barrel® is manufactured using AQUAPLATE® steel made only by BLUESCOPE steel. The inside surface of AQUAPLATE®  steel is manufactured with a food grade polymer liner. Independent testing has confirmed that the liner used for AQUAPLATE® steel meets the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4020 “Products for use in contact with drinking water”.

Aqua-Barrel® tanks are available in a range of sizes to suit your needs.  The 1000L and 2000L tanks feature a unique external bracing system to provide increased strength, reduce the risk of water leakage and minimise the potential for corrosion. The tank also comes with a three quarter inch outlet and tap as well as a mosquito proof inlet, which doubles as an inspection point when removed.

There are also a range of optional extras including tank stands and adjustable feet kits, as well as a complete range of accessories.

By installing additional plumbing and a pump, you'll be able to use your rainwater to flush the toilet, fill a washing machine, fill a water heater or to water the garden!

So head to a STRATCO Home Improvement Store near you for all your rainwater harvesting needs. And remember, if you do decide to plumb the tank into your house, always ensure you get a licensed plumber in to do the job.

STRATCO Home Improvement stores are located all across the state, with its newest store in Mandurah now open.
