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,可以最大限度地利用你的家和花园周围的免费资源,即使是在水限制的情况下。但是雨水储罐很大,装满后又很重,所以正确安装和维护它们是非常必要的。了解如何选择正确的坦克,得到专家的支持,满足所有的要求。一旦你安装了它,请检查保养雨水水箱

巨大的潜在节省
当你的雨水罐正确安装并安装到你的家里,它可以节省高达40%的饮用水供应。这意味着你每年可以省下200美元的水费。


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.查看规章制度

通常情况下,最多能储存1万升水的水箱不需要议会批准。但是,您必须遵守一些条件。有关豁免和合规发展的最新信息,请访问新南威尔士州规划和基础设施了解最新的新南威尔士州住房法规。

如果你想使用厕所或洗衣机里的雨水,你必须:

联系当地议会,看看他们是否有你必须遵守的地方要求。


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.

2.检查位置

你需要在水箱到达之前就检查建议的位置是否合适,这样你可以:

  • 最大化坦克的集水面积
  • 尽量减少管道和连接的费用
  • 提供一个安全稳定的基础,因为水箱装满水后会很重——1000升水重1吨。

阅读第32和33小节2008年国家环境规划政策(豁免和符合发展守则)并询问一个好的坦克供应商的具体考虑。

你不能在我们的自来水或污水总管上安装雨水罐
因为水箱装满后非常重,它们不能安装在自来水或污水总管上。给我们打电话13 20 92找出我们的电源在哪里。


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.找到合适的水箱

在你做决定之前研究一下雨水罐,至少从3个供应商那里获得报价。我们已经概述了一些关键的考虑因素。

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.

试着弄清楚哪种尺寸的水箱能为你的家庭节省最大的开支。一些网站和应用程序可以帮助你找到合适的水箱大小。你还需要考虑你的预算和你有多少空间。别忘了浇筑混凝土地基。

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.

坦克有各种各样的大小,形状和颜色。你也可以选择一个地下水箱。它们的购买和安装都要贵得多,而且需要额外的防回流措施。你可以在哪里放置你的坦克将影响坦克的类型,你可以使用。

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.

大多数水箱需要一个水泵来提供与你的饮用水相同的压力。这些可能是外部泵坐在地上的或者潜水泵它们就在水箱里。

  • 外部泵往往更耐用,持续时间更长。
  • 潜水泵被认为更安静。由于潜水泵在储罐内部,它不占额外的空间。理想情况下,潜水泵的进水口应该从底部抬高。这可以防止泵吸收任何污垢,沉淀在槽的底部。

可能会有各种各样的问题影响你的泵并使它停止工作,包括水泄漏到泵和短路,或零件磨损恶化。如果您的潜水泵有问题,我们建议您联系水泵维修专家评估并报价解决。如果你需要一个新的泵,购买一个外部泵,如果可能,并确保它适合的用途。

对于简单的住宅使用,我们建议使用小型外置泵。这取决于你的房产大小、灌溉需求以及你如何在家里使用雨水。较小的泵往往更节能。你可以买一个泵盖,以减少噪音和保护泵从元素。

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.

考虑一下水箱如何连接到你家的落水管,然后连接到雨水管。无论水箱大小如何,最大限度地提高流向水箱的屋顶面积是最大限度地节约用水的最佳方法。

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.

如果价格是一个因素,考虑最小容量为2000升连接到75%或以上的屋顶面积。确保你能负担得起将它连接到至少一个经常使用的内部管道装置,如厕所或洗衣机,并尽可能多地连接到你的屋顶。这将有助于确保您从您的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.安装水箱

记住,你的水箱的工作是提供干净,清澈的水,所以使用安装检查表当你安装它的时候。

安装检查表

  • 检查你的屋顶和排水沟是否适合收集雨水。不要从屋顶上收集雨水,屋顶上有含铅涂料或闪光物、沥青制品或暴露在外的处理过的木材。
  • 通过安装排水沟守卫或落水管屏风来防止头顶树木的阻塞。
  • 防止昆虫(和其他动物)进入你的水箱。你的雨水罐入口和溢流处必须是防蚊的,你必须确保没有其他的入口。
  • 使用第一冲水设备。这是一个简单有效的方法,只让最干净的水进入你的水箱。
  • 安装故障保险,水的充值连接或自动开关装置,以供应饮用水时,水箱是空的。
  • 给你的水泵增加一些节能的配件,比如压力罐。这些减少了泵的运行次数,节约能源,最大化了泵的寿命。
  • 在购买滤水器之前,要考虑如何使用雨水。许多不适合雨水,因为它们堵塞很快,会增加泵的能源消耗。


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

5.连接水箱

我们建议你雇佣一个有执照的水管工,他对雨水水箱的安装有经验。您可能还需要电工为您的泵和自动开关设备提供安全电源。

你的水箱需要连接管道来从你的:

  • 下水管到你的水箱
  • 水箱(当它溢出时)到雨水系统
  • 从油箱到泵
  • 泵到您的花园水龙头,厕所,洗衣机,热水系统和/或家庭管道。

你的水管工必须预约并支付检查费用新南威尔士州公平贸易任何与厕所、洗衣机或热水系统相连的雨水池装置,或当雨水池空时由饮用水供应系统加满或切换到饮用水供应系统的雨水池装置。


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.
