Are you looking to connect your downpipes to a rainwater tank or does your home need a stormwater system?
Rainwater tanks are a great asset to the family home. They come in all different shapes and sizes. They work well for using the water inside the tank on your grass or gardens. You can have a pump set up on the outlet of the rainwater tank which can connect to a garden tap, which will give you adequate pressure to do whatever is needed with the rain water.
With our experience in the plumbing industry and working on older style homes built in the 60s and 70s, they never worried about where the stormwater pipework went or the council did not have the correct systems in place for the household to connect there stormwater to.
There are a few different options when it comes to what to do with your stormwater system. Sometimes, your home is below street level and this may require a pit with a pump to be installed to drain the water to the upper street level. This can all be determined by a site inspection.
In other cases your stormwater system can drain by gravity to the street as it is higher than the street level.
The last option could also mean an absorption pit can be installed on your property which is a pit installed below surface level with blue metal aggregate and which stormwater enters and drains away into the surrounding surface so there are many options depending on the layout of your land.
To see what your options are, it would be best to contact us for a site visit and we would go through the different processes with you to determine which systems best suits your property.
