Let's talk tanks
As we push through another Canberra summer, you might be thinking about your rainwater stores, or purchasing a tank.
The Alternative Technology Association (ATA) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that promotes sustainable solutions for everyday households. The ATA provide advice on how to make homes cheaper to run, more comfortable to live in and more environmentally friendly. You may be familiar with their two magazines; ReNew and Sanctuary.
The ATA have developed a fantastic resource to help those thinking about purchasing a rainwater tank, or improve your current capacity. It's called Tankulator. You can calculate your catchment and use, find filtration and pump information, as well as cost guides for various types of tanks. Check it out!
