Rainwater Tank Maintenance

Rainwater Tank Maintenance

Research conducted by Councils found that a majority of new home owners had installed rainwater tanks as part of their BASIX requirements, but did not understand how to maintain the tanks and ensure they are working efficiently. In response, Hunter Joint Organisation Environment Program, with the assistance of Lake Macquarie City Council, created the following video resource to assist home owners to correctly maintain their rainwater tanks.

This video covers the issues of maintaining:

  • Roof and Gutters
  • First flush devices
  • Inlet devices and the rainwater tank
  • Water pumps and outlet devices.


Remember – Rainwater tanks are LOW maintenance not NO maintenance
