An average family uses 240,000 litres of water a year. Around 50% of this clean fresh water goes down the toilet or into the garden, installing a rainwater tank can reduce this by 100%.
A rainwater tank allows you to capture and use rainfall that, for most of us, runs to waste by flowing into the storm water system and into our rivers and bays. A rainwater tank is one way that you can contribute to the better use of this precious resource.

Water collected from your rainwater tank is ideal to use anywhere and anytime. Remember rainwater tanks have been around for hundreds of years! People in rural areas survive strictly on rainwater with the occasional top up from a water tanker. Residents in Melbourne, Victoria can do the same! Using rainwater to flush toilets accounts for around 20% or 54,000 litres of the average Melbourne, Victoria households annual water use. Why stop there? By connecting your rainwater tank system to the laundry, bathroom, kitchen and the garden facilities there is a large saving potential to be made. If you're worried about pollution and bad tasting water, well don't! There is a large range of filters available to clean the water suitable for drinking.
Worried about pressure? M2 RainTanks carries all the equipment needed not only to harvest, clean and filter you're rainwater, but to deliver it at fantastic pressure- in most cases better than mains pressure. By using a good quality pressure pump you can achieve this and more. M2 RainTanks carries all the leading pressure pump brands. Don't get caught buying the wrong pump. Let us size up your pressure pump to ensure you get the right pump for the job and achieve maximum potential.
If being dependent on rainwater is the thing for you or you want to use it in parts of the home as mentioned above, this is great! Having main water as a backup is the next step. M2 RainTanks provides 'automatic change-over devices' that switch between tank water and mains water fully automatically. When your rainwater tank is full the device detects this and allows rainwater to be used within the home. Of course when your rainwater tank runs low the device reads this and restores mains water back to the home. Even in the event of a power failure the change-over device will default to mains water, this way you will never be without water. Sounding good? Well this is only a small pinch of the benefits of a rainwater tank. By having a rainwater tank you are reducing the amount of mains water you consume. In return, you will save money on your monthly water bill.
