General Plumbing FAQs

Looking to know more about rainwater tanks? See what our clients have asked our plumbers:

Yes, it is possible to install a rainwater tank under a deck. There are a few things to consider when installing a rainwater tank under a deck:

  1. Ensure the deck is structurally sound and can support the tank’s weight when it is full.
  2. Consider the height of the tank and the height of the deck. You may need to modify the deck or the tank to ensure that the tank is accessible for maintenance and that the water can be pumped out easily.
  3. Ensure the tank is protected from debris and other materials that may fall onto it from the above deck.
  4. Consider the location of the tank in relation to the downspouts or other sources of rainwater. The tank should be located as close as possible to these sources to maximize the amount of water it can collect.
  5. Consult with a professional or follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation to ensure that the tank is installed correctly and safely.

There are a few different options for installing a rainwater tank:

  1. If you have the necessary skills and tools, you may be able to install the tank yourself. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and all local building codes when installing the tank.
  2. You can hire a professional plumber to install the tank for you. Look for a contractor who has experience installing rainwater tanks and is licensed and insured.
  3. Some companies that sell rainwater tanks may also offer installation services. This can be a convenient option, but be sure to research the company and get estimates from multiple sources before making a decision.

Regardless of who installs the tank, it is important to ensure that it is installed correctly and safely to ensure that it functions properly and does not pose a risk to you or your property.

Yes, installing a tap or faucet on a rainwater tank is possible. Here are the steps you can follow to install a tap on a rainwater tank:

  1. Choose a location for the tap that is easily accessible and close to where you will be using the water.
  2. Cut a hole in the tank using a hole saw or jigsaw. The size of the hole will depend on the size of the tap you are using.
  3. Clean the inside of the tank around the hole to remove any debris or sharp edges.
  4. Install the tap onto the hole using a gasket and bolts. Tighten the bolts securely to ensure a watertight seal.
  5. Attach a hose or pipe to the tap and run it to the area where you will be using the water.
  6. Test the tap to ensure it is working correctly and has no leaks.

It is a good idea to consult with a professional or follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing a tap on a rainwater tank. This will help ensure that the tap is installed correctly and safely.

Installing rainwater tanks can positively impact individual homeowners and the broader community. Some of the potential benefits of installing rainwater tanks include the following:

  1. Water conservation: Rainwater tanks allow you to collect and store rainwater in your home or garden, reducing the amount of water you need to draw from your municipal water supply. This can help reduce the demand for local water resources and be especially beneficial in areas with limited water supplies or during drought.
  2. Cost savings: Using rainwater to water your garden or other non-potable uses can save you money on your water bills.
  3. Environmental benefits: Rainwater is generally considered a more environmentally friendly water source than treated municipal water. Using rainwater can reduce the energy and resources required to treat and distribute water and reduce the water in sewage treatment plants.
  4. Property value: Rainwater tanks can be viewed as a desirable feature by potential home buyers, which can increase the value of your property.

Overall, the impact of installing rainwater tanks can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the tank, the amount of rainfall in your area, and your water usage habits.
