Rainwater is not potable and cannot be used for cooking or cleaning utensils either. But you can use it for non-drinking purposes like toilets, laundry, watering the garden, cleaning pathways, etc. You can use it for your backyard pool if you have one and reduce your water bills. Sydney water supply bills you for the water you consume but nature never sends you a bill for the rainwater.

If you have your irrigation system connected to a rain water tank, your water problems will reduce significantly. We at SPS Plumbers Hills District offer excellent rainwater tank installations and customised solutions.

Rainwater Tank Installation

Rainwater tank installation must conform to Local Council guidelines. A licensed NSW plumber needs to connect your tank to your plumbing system. It is also necessary to check whether you need permission to install a tank on your property. As mentioned, tank-stored rainwater can be used for various purposes like flushing toilets, washing clothes, watering garden, etc.

How Do I Find A Right Rainwater Tank?

Water tanks are generally available in materials such as:

  • Metal tanks – These are manufactured from flat-rolled or corrugated metal that is galvanised or coated. A plastic inner lining applied to the tank protects the quality of water and increases the lifespan of the tank. Metal tanks are fit to install above or below the ground.
  • Fibreglass tanks – Fibreglass is rustproof, chemical-resistant as well as unaffected by extreme temperatures. Fibreglass tanks are expensive compared to other tanks and better suited to above the ground installation.
  • Polyethylene (plastic) tanks –As a cheaper and durable option, polyethylene tanks are widely used and popular. They are ideal for houses near the ocean as they are rust proof. PVC and Geotextile are other synthetic materials used for bladder storage. Bladders are a suitable water storage feature and perfect for installation below a deck or floor.
  • Concrete tanks – These heavy custom-made tanks withstand rust, burn, melting. You can choose a readymade version, and they are excellent for agricultural and industrial purposes and can be constructed on site as well.

High Quality Rainwater Tank Installation

While deciding the size of a tank, you need to factor in the fall area that your roof permits. Space permitting, it may sometimes be more convenient to position two small tanks over one large tank, Underground tanks are more practical but expensive to install. In a nutshell, you need to look at your options and their suitability and costs. It’s also necessary to prevent contamination of rainwater in the tank from dust, unclean gutters, and other dirt. Besides, insect barriers are essential to protect the mosquitoes from breeding in the water.

We will provide information about the different types of tanks and their pros and cons and can handle rainwater tank installations, in line with local council rules and regulations.

Understanding What’s Involved In Pipe Relining

pipe relining pipe work / aiims

Damage to underwater drain pipes is extremely challenging to fix. Not only is the job more laborious than most other plumbing jobs, but it turns out to be more time intensive and expensive too. But we at SPS Plumbers Hills District are a highly experienced company in this industry and cater to commercial and residential clients across the region. Our objective is to ensure that the services we offer, solve the plumbing problems our clients face and provide them value for money.

Drain Pipe Replacement

We also know that sewer drain damages are common especially in older drain lines. The traditional method of fixing these problems involved digging up large sections of the landscaping to get to the pipe underground and inspect it for damage.

Once the damage has been identified that portion of the pipe would need to be dug out and replaced with a new one. This entire process was extremely invasive and involved ripping up large sections of the landscape. After the plumbing problem was fixed, the property owners would have to make sure that the landscape was repaired and restored to its original state.

This escalated the cost of the job too. But as mentioned, we look to provide our clients value for money which is why we always adopt the latest technology in our work. When it comes to drain repairs, we recommend the pipe relining method.

Pipe Relining- What is It?

If you have a damaged drain and call our company to fix it, our team will visit your property and use CCTV drain camera to determine what is causing the leak or blockage., In addition to debris, small items, and food particles, tree roots tend to infiltrate the pipes and start to grow at a rapid rate within the pipe. Ultimately, the roots form a very stubborn bock that results in a sewer backup in your house.

Our team will determine where the block is and will use a powerful root cutter to clear the roots. They will then use a high pressure jet to clear the tree roots that could be causing the block. Once the block has been removed we will assess the level of damage to the pipe, If the damage is extensive, pipe relining becomes a good solution to fix the drain pipe.

The pipe relining method is non-invasive and involves installing a lining within the existing drain pipe. In this job, very little digging needs to be done and only two small trenches will be dug, one at either end of the affected drain. The epoxy sleeve will be inserted into the drain and expanded until it fits the inside of the drain very snugly.

We use the latest technology in this pipe relining method, and this seamless inner sleeve can last for a minimum of fifty years if not more. Once the work is complete, we will recheck the drain to make sure whether the lining is perfectly in place, before we consider our job done.
