What Size Rainwater Tank Should You Have?

BY DIONNE LISTER

If you are considering installing a rainwater tank and aren’t sure what size you need, there is now a free app to help. Smart WaterMark has developed Australia’s first mobile rain tank calculator - iSaveH2O, which you can download from iTunes.

The application will let you know how much water you can potentially save and what size rainwater tank you will need. The app is linked to the Bureau of Meteorology database for daily rainfall and temperature records for the last 10 years (this gives information for all postcodes). It was developed with the Institute for Sustainable Futures.

The application can give you the size of the rain tank you need within 3 minutes, and also includes a live online database of over 260 water saving products and services, all of which are certified by Smart WaterMark.

So choosing a rainwater tank has never been easier.
