If you live in a low-set home, grab a ladder and some gloves and start clearing the debris from the gutters. For double-storey homes, you will need to hire a professional with the right safety equipment to clean your gutters safely. The best way to check for a blockage in your stormwater drain is to use a hose and watch whether or not the water backs up through the downpipe or drain.When it rains, take a good look at your gutters. If you see water flowing out of them, there is a blockage that needs to be cleared.

Where to put your tankThe tank’s location is a key determinant of its size, shape, material and even it’s colour, especially if you decide to blend it in with surroundings. In many cases, installing a tank above ground and alongside your dwelling makes the most sense. However, underground tanks can also be a great solution if you are limited on space or live in an urban location. Your options could be along the fence, under a deck, in the sub floor, underground, as a retaining wall, tucked next to the house or in the backyard. Another option is in a high spot (as pictured left), so it can be gravity-fed, thereby avoiding the noise, maintenance and energy needs of a pump. The best place for it, however, is in a shaded spot, to keep water temperature low, reduce evaporation and slow down deterioration.

The tanks at the rear are positioned to collect rainwater for drinking. These can be supplemented by the local water supply if required. The house also has a Biolytix worm-fed septic treatment for waste.

In den Tonnen auf dem hinteren Teil des Hauses wird Regenwasser gesammelt, das die Familie als Trinkwasser nutzt. Falls das nicht ausreicht, kann zusätzlich Wasser aus der Leitung benutzt werden. Außerdem verfügt das Haus über ein spezielles biologisches Kompostsystem von Biolytix.
