Rain Water Harvesting, Tanks and Pumps

Did you know that you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on water every year by installing a rainwater tank and using this water for your garden irrigation, toilets, laundry and swimming pools?

FAQ’s:

What happens if I run out of water?

  • Water Tight Canberra can install an automatic change over switch so that when the tank is empty it will automatically switch to the mains water.

Will all the leaves and dirt in my gutters end up in my tank?

  • By installing first flush diverters we can eliminate or minimise the amount of unwanted debris ending up in the tank.

Can I drink tank water?

  • Local authorities don’t recommend drinking tank water unless the tank is regularly maintained and suitable cleaning methods such as first flush diverters are installed. By not drinking supplied town water you are missing out on fluoride which dentist recommend for healthy teeth.

What are the advantages of rain water tanks?

  • Provide flushing water to toilets, washing clothes, garden irrigation and filling the pool
  • Reduce your water consumption
  • Reduce your water bills
  • Reduce stormwater on roads, drainage infrastructure, creeks and streams
  • Reduces contaminates in our water ways

    I booked Watertight after seeing their van in our area. They arrived on the day and at the time booked and contacted us if any delays occurred. Over the past two months I have used Watertight’s services four times as part of kitchen renovations. Each tradesman has been on time and very helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending Watertight Plumbing for your plumbing needs.

    I contacted Tom about root herbicide treatment for our house. Tom was very easy professional and set up an appointment immediately. He also helped us clear two pipes that were unfortunately already blocked by the roots and charged us for the use of the eel once for two pipes. Overall, impressive workmanship at a competitive price. I'll definitely call Tom and his team again for any plumbing issues.

    Tom and his team did an outstanding job for us in fixing a blocked drain that other plumbers had insisted required digging up (costing $8000). Not only did Tom go above and beyond to help us, he took a personal interest and is damn good bloke. I don't normally write public reviews, but Tom deserves more than this few minutes of my time. I would highly recommend Water Tight Canberra and its sister company Canberra Blocked Drains. Thanks Tom

    Fast, efficient, friendly and thoroughly reliable is how I would describe my experience with Tom and his team. These guys really know their stuff. They get to the heart of the problem and will give you an honest appraisal with options. I would have no hesitation in using them again.

    A few weeks ago we had an emergency leak with the fridge tap. We called Water Tight plumbing late on a Saturday evening not expecting we'd get any help at that time. The young guy (I thought his name was Sam) came out in no time from Water Tight Plumbing. He was friendly, professional, honest and even took the time to explain our issue and test his work. Service like this is quite rare in my experience. I can't recommend this business highly enough.
