Rainwater is a good source of water for using on your garden, washing your clothes, flushing the toilet, and - if it's properly treated or purified - for drinking and other household uses. The collection of rainwater can easily take place within cities and towns, not just in rural areas as some people may think. Rainwater is typically collected from the roofs of buildings and stored in rainwater tanks.
There are many benefits of catching and storing your rainwater:
Your plants will love the warm, soft, chlorine-free rainwater. Fewer minerals will also reduce wear and tear on your plumbing fixtures.
When thinking about harvesting rainwater, you need to think about how you’ll use the water, as this will determine the set up and filter of your tank. Will you be using the water inside the home? Or outside only? Filters provide extra confidence in your rainwater quality by filtering sediment, colour and odour from rainwater.
However, regardless of what type of filter you’ll need, you will definitely need quality gutter guard protection to ensure your rainwater is as pure as possible when it comes down from your roof. Without gutter guards, you’ll constantly need to check the roof and guttering for debris, overhanging vegetation and bird droppings to make sure your roof remains clean.
Without gutter guards, your gutters can expect the following issues:
Protecting your gutters will not only give you good quality rainwater, it will also:
Therefore if you’re looking to start collecting rainwater, check your gutters first and install high quality gutter guards.
Gutter guards are made of aluminium, plastic or stainless steel and sit over your drains, protecting them from leaves and debris that block your drain. Gutter guard protection will significantly improve the cleanliness and quality of the water you can collect. Give our friendly team at Aussie Gutter Protection a call for a chat and a free quote.
