DIY tank maintenance!

Non-maintained tanks which supply water for your toilet and laundry use could be drawing most of their water from the town water supply instead of your tank and increasing your water bills, without you realising.

Use our DIY guide to give your tank a service and ensure you have high quality rainwater flowing into your tank and saving you money.
