“We would have put in a biggg­ger wa­ter tank”

Inside Out (Australia) - - Homes - RA­MON, HOME­OWNER

“We were go­ing to in­stall an 8000-litre ca­pac­ity tank but we changed the lo­ca­tion and it had to be a 5000-litre one. We use it for all the ir­ri­ga­tion and the toi­lets. It just means we can’t re­cy­cle wa­ter as much as we would like, but it only be­comes a fac­tor in sum­mer,” says Ra­mon. “We know we run out of tank wa­ter be­cause the pres­sure changes when it’s com­ing offff mains,” adds Kim­ber­ley. “It’s also good for the en­vi­ron­ment to be us­ing rain­wa­ter, es­pe­cially for the plants.”
