Rainfall in Australian Capital Cities
are often surprised when they realise just how much water falls
on their roof areas as rain. It's a bountiful resource that most
of us don't tap (no pun intended!), at a time when society as a
whole is faced with acute water shortages.
calculation of how much rain water you can collect in is really
each millimetre of rain that fall on each square metre of roof,
get one litre of water.
means that if you have 150 square metres of roof, and your annual
rainfall is 1000 mm., then you can collect 150,000 litres a year.
Deduct 5-10% for evaporation, absorbtion, leakage etc., and what
you've got left is... a lot! Water tanks in urban areas make sense,
and we'll be happy to help you choose a quality one that will suit
your home, and your needs.
help you work out how much water you can collect, and at what times
of the year, you need to know the average rainfall pattern for your
city. We have collected the official information from the Australian
