Rainwater harvesting is a method used for collecting, storing, and using rainwater to avoid water shortage and in turn use this water for landscape irrigation and other domestic as well as commercial uses.

This very old practice is currently growing in popularity throughout our community’s cause of awareness in people about constantly reducing natural water supply and reducing the consumption of clean drinking water and the innate qualities of rainwater. The storage tank made specifically is the most costly component of a rainwater harvesting system. There are various types and kinds of storage tanks available. Storage of rain water can be done above the ground as rooftop water tanks or underground. Storage containers can be made from various materials like galvanized steel, concrete, clay, plastic, glass and many more, etc. Examples of above the ground storage include barrels, tanks, big cans, roof top swimming pools, etc. Storage tank prices vary on the basis of different aspects such as size, material used and complexity of placement. To prevent the growth of algae, storage tanks should be solid and preferably kept away from direct sunlight. The tanks should also be kept near to the areas of use thereby reducing the supply line and also the distance over which the water is to be delivered. Also they must be placed on an elevated area there by helping gravity. Thus in Australia where there is long period of drought and then heavy rainfall rain water harvesting is very important.
