Rainwater

  • Average rainfall here is about 2000mm per year but only around 250mm from June to October, so it’s only a question of storage.

  • If you have a garden or revegetation area that requires watering, you will have significantly higher usage during the dry season. If possible, utilise drippers from your grey water system for the garden.

  • Leaves will lead to impurities in you water – installing leaf guards in your guttering and leaf catchers at the end of drains will reduce cleaning and the need to clear unnecessary vegetation.

  • Keep your roof clean, and light coloured roofs grow less mould.
