LOW DAMN LEVELS, WATER SHORTAGES AND WATER RESTRICTIONS IN PERTH? RAINWATER IS THE SOLUTION

Liza Joubert – Monday, November 05, 2012

Perth’s dwindling water supply and the urge by the Water Corporation to use less water has seen a run on the installation of rain water tanks in homes.

Rainwater tank expert Liza Joubert said an increasing number of householders were turning to rain water as a means of accessing a free water supply.

“Since the recent reports about our low damn levels in Perth there has certainly been a spike in inquiries from home owners about having a rain water tank installed,” said Ms Joubert.

“Many people are now starting to look for their own alternatives rather than having to pay more or watch their garden die,” she said.

“We may have had some recent rainfall, but winter has been quite dry and so the Government says we can expect ongoing water restrictions.”

“People are starting to realise that rainwater is a source of free but also healthy water.”

“Rainwater tanks are incredibly affordable, more-so than most people realise.”

Ms Joubert said water from a rainwater tank could be used for:

  • Gardening
  • General cleaning
  • Filling up the pool
  • Washing machine and flushing toilets

“People are often put off because they think it is going to be expensive but installing a 3000 liter water tank to harvest rainwater from gutters and downpipes comes in at less than a thousand dollars,” Ms Joubert said.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics the prevalence of rainwater tanks as a source of water for Australian households continues to increase.

Twenty six per cent of households used a rainwater tank as a source of water in 2010 compared with 19 per cent of households in 2007 and only 17 per cent in 2004*.

“Other great water savings incentives like the shower head swop helps to save up to 30 litres of water per person per day.”

“And new more efficient duel flash toilets rebate scheme are all part of the move to save water.

“In WA’s lower great southern region some rebates apply on water tanks.”

“Our team do free onsite quotes to most areas and supply information on ways to save water and combine these tips with rainwater storage and usage.”.

ANNUAL WATER RATES AND USAGE FEES SPIRAL – WHY RAINWATER IS THE SOLUTION

Liza Joubert – Monday, November 05, 2012

Many property owners will soon receive their annual water rates notice – and may be shocked by how much they have to pay for a natural resource.

Water filtration expert Liza Joubert said as water rates and water usage fees increased, few people realised that using rain water was a less expensive – and better quality option.

“Most people would be truly alarmed to know what is in their mains drinking water,” said Ms Joubert.

“We’ve recently seen stories about the poor quality drinking water in Busselton, but it’s not only an issue in the south west,” she said.

“Poor quality water that is high in contaminants includes polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs, chlorine, arsenic and lead is common throughout the metropolitan area.”

“Rainwater tanks and filtrations systems provide homes with access to clean, free water that is both health and cost effective,” Ms Joubert said.

Ms Joubert said to cope with the most common impurities found in mains water supply and to save money and water to answer is simple:

  1. Install water tanks to collect rainwater
  2. Plumb rainwater from tanks directly to the home
  3. OR install filtration systems to purify main water supply



“An increasing number of householders are turning to rain water as their standard means of accessing a water supply.”

According to the Australian bureau of Statistics the prevalence of rainwater tanks as a source of water for Australian households continues to increase.
Twenty six per cent of households used a rainwater tank as a source of water in 2010 compared to the 19 per cent of households in 2007 and only 17 per cent in 2004*.

“It can be less than one thousand dollars to buy and install a tank , and many assume that they do not have enough space to install a water tank, but there is a wide range of modern slimline and under eve tanks to suit all home sizes.”

“There is no question that more and more people are turning to this valuable and pure source of water and turning their back on the expensive chlorine filled mains supply.”

Ms Joubert runs a rainwater tank manufacturing company in Perth servicing the needs to households and Industry- saving water and money by installing water tanks and rain harvesting equipment, from Jurien byt Perth Mandurah to Busselton .

CALLS TO REINTRODUCE THE RAINWATER TANK REBATE IN WA AS RECORD DRY WINTER LEADS TO WATER CRISIS

Liza Joubert – Monday, October 08, 2012

Perth’s rain harvesting expert Liza Joubert said it was time for the government to get serious about solving the problem and realise that excess water use by householders is the main issue.

“Saving water and has never been so important to Perth and the Government needs to reintroduce the rainwater tank rebate urgently,” said Ms Joubert.

“It really is the case that every drop counts – and consumers are at the front line of the battle to save our water supply,” she said.

“We can build more desalination plants, recycle our sewage and deal with wastewater, but that’s tackling the problem in the wrong way.”

“Householders need to realise that the buck stops with them – and we must curb demand.”

“They play an important role in how water is used, so if they can better capture rain water, we will have a longer term solution to the problem.”

“In most other states and in many countries around the world it is mandatory that rain water tanks are installed into new homes.”

“The government funds these programs by way of providing a rebate.”

“In WA this used to be the case, but the rebate program was dropped some years ago.”

Ms Joubert said having a rainwater tank changes people’s attitudes towards water use because:

  • A rainwater tank allows consumers to see how much water they have collected
  • A rainwater tank allows householders to see how much water they have used
  • Householders have a visual and physical reminder of how they use water and the impact of that use
  • Creating a consciousness around usage and saving of money and water
  • Creating a feeling of doing the right thing by using a green eco friendly product

“It’s also possible to link your rain water tank to your laundry and toilets, saving up to 50 thousand litres of water next year.”

“The reality is that with the low dam levels, the dry winter rainfall we experienced plus the high and increasing demand on water supply, water is becoming a high valued commodity and should start to be treated as such.”

Ms Joubert is a keen environmentalist and is actively involved in community gardens and projects creating public awareness and understanding the importance of water in Australia. She is also a nominee for the 40 under 40 business award She is known as Perth’s rainwater harvesting expert, having advised thousands of homeowners on how to save and use this precious natural resource.

Ms Joubert is running a Save Water Expo on October 26 , plus showcasing on the 13th of October on Channel 7 in Homes in WA our water wise products to celebrate Water Week. People are welcome to attend free lectures on how to save water and also view water wise products. To find out more the Save Water Expo go to www.jojotanks.com.au

Ms Joubert is a director of Perth– based rain harvesting tank manufacturing and rain harvesting installation company Jo Jo Tanks and was recently nominated for the 40 under 40 awards by WA Business news
