We realised the importance of collecting or harvesting rain water -there is a huge potential of water that we can harvest. We have 24, 2500litre tanks so have the ability to capture 60 000litres! Imagine if we had tanks collecting off all of our roofs or that we had tanks with a bigger volume of 5000l or 10 000 litres. We realise that with the drought rain water harvesting is one way to try and ensure that we maximise our chance to collect rain during the few times it does. Also when there are water outages, we will still be able to rely on what we have harvested.
