Part of Australia's Heritage

Ever since early settlement the humble water tank has been a part of Australia's heritage. It's unmistakeable silhouette seen on thousands of Australian homes over the centuries.

Since the inception of town supply (mains water) the necessity of the water tank took a back seat within housing construction. Now in the 21st century we are again finding the value in every household catching and storing fresh rainwater for reuse in the home and garden. With natural resources dwindling and the service demand growing we are finding it more and more common that water restrictions are enforced and the price we pay to councils to purcgase water is growing each year.

How you can do your part

By installing a Rainkeeper water recycling system you will be helping to save our decreasing water supplies.

Rainkeeper tanks are installed below ground and do not invade valuable yard space. They capture fresh natural rainwater and store it for reuse in the house and garden in facilities such as washing machines, toilet cisterns and outside garden taps. To the right is a graph showing how water is consumed within different parts of the home.


The Rainkeeper tanks are made from solid reinforced concrete in accordance with Australian Standards. We can install the tank in your backyard, underground, needing a hole size of 3000 x 3000 x 2850mm deep. The stormwater pipes from your house are connected to the tank and an overflow pipe attached to the stormwater drain. The control box is mounted to an outside wall (usually near the meter box) and the tank is connected to it, to service your washing machine, toilet cisterns and outside garden taps.

Alternatively we can also offer the option of an above ground tank either in poly or colorbond material. These tanks are available in a range of colours. The above ground option means the tank would need to be placed close to the roofing downpipes to enable sufficient fall for drainage. By using an above ground tank you have a greater range of size for initial water storage, however the larger the tank the more yard space is used.
