雨水坦克

Make the most of a precious, free resource\r\n

Installing a rainwater tank is an environmentally friendly way to make the most of a freely available resource to use around your home and garden, even when water restrictions are in force. But rainwater tanks are large, and heavy when full so it's essential that they're installed and maintained correctly. Find out how to pick the right tank, get expert support and meet all the requirements. Once you have it installed, check out Maintaining your rainwater tank.

充分利用宝贵的免费资源

安装雨水罐是一种环保的方式,即使在有效的水限制时,也可以充分利用房屋和花园周围的免费资源。但是雨水坦克很大,而且装满时很重,因此必须正确安装和维护。找出如何选择合适的坦克,获得专家支持并满足所有要求。安装后,请查看维护您的雨水罐

巨大的节省
当您的雨水罐正确安装并置于您的房屋中时​​,它可以节省多达40%的饮用水供应。这可能意味着每年减少水费200美元。


1. Check the regulations\r\n

Tanks that can store a maximum of 10,000 litres of water don’t normally need council approval. However, you must comply with a number of conditions. For the latest information about exempt and complying development, visit NSW Planning & Infrastructure for the latest copy of the NSW Housing Code.

\r\n

If you want to use the water from your rainwater tank in your toilet or washing machine, you must:

1.检查法规

最多可以存储10,000升水的坦克通常不需要理事会批准。但是,您必须遵守许多条件。有关豁免和遵守开发的最新信息,请访问新南威尔士州规划和基础设施有关新南威尔士州住房法规的最新副本。

如果您想在厕所或洗衣机中使用雨水罐中的水,则必须:

  • 评估网站
  • 检查你的预防回流要求,因为您可能需要安装特定于属性的回流设备
  • 申请连接悉尼水龙头

请与您的地方议会联系,以查看他们是否必须遵守任何当地要求。


2. Check the location\r\n

You need to check the suitability of the proposed location well before the tank arrives so you can:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • maximise the tank’s catchment area
  • \r\n
  • minimise the plumbing and connection costs
  • \r\n
  • provide a safe and stable foundation, as the tank will be heavy once it’s full of water – 1,000 litres weigh 1 tonne.
  • \r\n
\r\n

Read Subdivisions 32 and 33 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 and ask a good tank supplier for site-specific considerations.

\r\n"}}" id="ID02" class="cmp-text">

2.检查位置

您需要在坦克到达之前先检查拟议位置的适用性,以便您可以:

  • 最大化坦克的集水区
  • 最小化管道和连接成本
  • 提供一个安全稳定的粉底,因为一旦储罐充满了水,该储罐就会很重 - 1,000升重1吨。

阅读第32和33个细分国家环境规划政策(豁免和遵守开发法规)2008并向优秀的储罐供应商索取特定于现场的考虑因素。

您不能在我们的水或废水主管上安装雨水罐
由于储罐在装满时很重,因此无法将其安装在水或废水主管上。打电话给我们13 20 92找出我们的电源所在的位置。


3. Find the right tank\r\n

Research rainwater tanks before you make a decision and get quotes from at least 3 suppliers. We've outlined some of the key considerations.

3.找到合适的坦克

在做出决定之前,研究雨水罐并从至少3个供应商那里获得报价。我们概述了一些关键考虑因素。

Try to work out which tank size will deliver the greatest savings for your home. Some websites and apps can help you find the right tank size. You’ll also need to consider your budget and how much space you have. Don’t forget to pour a concrete foundation.

\r\n"}}" id="text-a424cd1440" class="cmp-text">

尝试确定哪种储罐尺寸将为您的房屋节省最大的节省。一些网站和应用程序可以帮助您找到合适的储罐尺寸。您还需要考虑预算以及拥有多少空间。不要忘记倒入混凝土粉底。

Tanks come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colours. You can also choose a below-ground tank. These are much more expensive to buy and install, and need extra backflow-prevention measures. Where you can position your tank will influence the type of tank you can use.

坦克有多种尺寸,形状和颜色。您也可以选择一个地下水箱。这些购买和安装要昂贵得多,需要额外的预防措施。您可以将储罐放置在哪里会影响您可以使用的水箱类型。

Most tanks need a pump to supply water at the same pressure as your drinking water supply. These may be external pumps that sit on the ground or submersible pumps that sit inside the tank.

\r\n
    \r\n
  • External pumps tend to be more durable and last longer.
  • \r\n
  • Submersible pumps are considered to be quieter. As a submersible pump is inside the tank, it doesn’t take up extra space. Ideally, submersible pumps should have their intake raised from the bottom. This stops the pump from taking in any dirt that settles at the bottom of the tank.
  • \r\n
\r\n

There can be a variety of problems that affect your pump and stop it from working, including water leaking into the pump and shorting the circuit, or parts deteriorating due to wear and tear. If you have a problem with your submersible pump, we recommend that you contact a pump repair specialist to assess and quote to fix it. If you need a new pump, buy an external pump if possible and ensure it’s fit for purpose.

\r\n

We recommend a small external pump for simple residential use. This will depend on your property size, irrigation needs and how you use rainwater in your home. Smaller pumps tend to be more energy efficient. You can buy a pump cover to minimise noise and protect the pump from the elements.

大多数坦克需要泵以与饮用水供应相同的压力供水。这些可能是外部泵那坐在地面或潜水泵那坐在坦克内。

  • 外部泵往往更耐用,持续更长的时间。
  • 潜水泵被认为更安静。由于水箱内有潜水泵,因此不会占用额外的空间。理想情况下,潜水泵应该从底部提高摄入量。这阻止了泵的任何沉淀在水箱底部的污垢。

可能会有多种问题会影响您的泵并阻止其工作,包括漏水到泵中并缩短电路,或者由于磨损而导致的零件恶化。如果您对潜水泵有问题,我们建议您与泵维修专家联系以评估和报价以修复它。如果您需要新的泵,请在可能的情况下购买外部泵,并确保适合目的。

我们建议一个小型外部泵,供简单的住宅使用。这将取决于您的财产规模,灌溉需求以及如何在家中使用雨水。较小的泵往往更节能。您可以购买泵盖,以最大程度地减少噪声并保护泵免受元件的侵害。

Consider how the tank connects to your home’s downpipes and then to the stormwater pipes. Maximising the roof area flowing to your tank is the best way to maximise your water savings, regardless of tank size.

\r\n"}}" id="text-8eda17a044" class="cmp-text">

考虑一下水箱如何连接到您房屋的倾斜,然后如何连接到雨水管道。最大化流向水箱的屋顶区域是最大程度地节省水的最佳方法,而不论水箱尺寸如何。

If price is a factor, consider a minimum tank size of 2,000 litres connected to 75% or more of your roof area. Make sure you can afford to have it connected to at least one regularly used internal plumbing fixture like a toilet or washing machine and to as much of your roof as possible. This will help ensure you receive maximum value from your purchase.

\r\n"}}" id="text-97ff9abae4" class="cmp-text">

如果价格是一个因素,请考虑将最小储罐的尺寸与2,000升的最低量相连为75%或更多的屋顶区域。确保您有能力将其连接到至少一个定期使用的内部管道固定装置,例如厕所或洗衣机,并尽可能多地将其连接到。这将有助于确保您从购买中获得最大价值。


4. Install your tank\r\n

Remember that the job of your tank is to deliver clean, clear water, so use the installation checklist below when you’re installing it.

\r\n

Installation checklist
\r\n

\r\n
    \r\n
  • Check that your roof and guttering are suitable to collect rainwater. Don’t collect rainwater from roofs with lead-based paint or flashing, bitumen-based products, or exposed treated wood.
  • \r\n
  • Prevent blockages from overhead trees by installing gutter guards or downpipe screens.
  • \r\n
  • Prevent insects (and any other animals) from entering your tank. Your rainwater tank inlet and overflow must be mosquito proof and you must ensure there’s no other point of entry.
  • \r\n
  • Use a first-flush device. This is a simple and effective way of only letting the cleanest water into your tank.
  • \r\n
  • Install a fail-safe, top-up water connection or an auto-switching device to supply drinking water when the tank is empty.
  • \r\n
  • Add energy-efficient accessories like a pressure tank to your pump. These reduce the number of times your pump runs, saving energy and maximising the pump’s life.
  • \r\n
  • Consider how you’ll use your rainwater before you buy a water filter. Many are not suited for rainwater as they clog quickly and can increase your pump’s energy use.
  • \r\n

4.安装坦克

请记住,您的水箱的工作是输送干净,清澈的水,因此请使用安装清单下面安装它。

安装清单

  • 检查您的屋顶和排水沟是否适合收集雨水。不要从屋顶上收集带有铅基油漆或闪光,基于沥青的产品或裸露的木材的雨水。
  • 通过安装天沟警卫或落水管屏幕来防止头顶树木的堵塞。
  • 防止昆虫(以及任何其他动物)进入您的水箱。您的雨水坦克入口和溢出必须是蚊子的证明,您必须确保没有其他入境点。
  • 使用第一笔费换设备。这是一种仅让最清洁的水进入水箱的简单有效方法。
  • 安装故障安全,充值水连接或自动切换设备,以便在储罐空的时候提供饮用水。
  • 在泵上添加节能配件,例如压力箱。这些减少了泵的运行次数,从而节省了能量并最大程度地发挥泵的寿命。
  • 在购买滤水器之前,请考虑如何使用雨水。许多人不适合雨水,因为它们会迅速堵塞,并且可以增加泵的能源使用。


5. Connect your tank\r\n

We recommend that you hire a licensed plumber who’s experienced with rainwater tank installations. You may also need an electrician to provide a safe power supply for your pump and auto-switching device.

\r\n

Your tank will need plumbing connections to deliver water from your:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • downpipes to your tank
  • \r\n
  • tank (when it’s overflowing) to the stormwater system
  • \r\n
  • tank to your pump
  • \r\n
  • pump to your garden taps, toilets, washing machine, hot water system and/or household plumbing.
  • \r\n
\r\n"}}" id="ID05" class="cmp-text">

5.连接您的坦克

我们建议您聘请持牌水管工,他经验丰富。您可能还需要电工来为您的泵和自动开关设备提供安全的电源。

您的水箱将需要管道连接才能从您的身上输送水:

  • 倒在坦克
  • 坦克(溢出时)到雨水系统
  • 坦克到你的泵
  • 泵到您的花园水龙头,厕所,洗衣机,热水系统和/或家用管道。

您的水管工必须预订并支付检查费用新南威尔士州公平交易对于任何连接到厕所,洗衣机或热水系统的雨水储罐装置,或在空的饮用水供应中供应或切换到储水液的位置。


6. Have your plumbing inspected\r\n

Visit NSW Fair Trading to see if the plumbing work needs to be inspected or call them for more information. Don’t forget to ask your plumber for your Certificate of Compliance when the work is done. This certifies that the plumbing work meets the current Plumbing Code of Australia.

\r\n"}}" id="ID06" class="cmp-text">

6.检查管道检查

访问新南威尔士州公平交易查看是否需要检查管道工作或致电以获取更多信息。完成工作后,请不要忘记向水管工提供合规证书。这证明了管道工作符合当前澳大利亚管道守则
