    Does anyone have a good contact for someone to install a slimline water tank?
    I need the base made (crusher dust) and the downpiping andoverflow installed I got one quote but it was some ridiculous amount of money it seemed extreme.
    For my ppor soon to be ip

    I'm also interested in having a water tank installed.

    What's the other websites? service seeking?

    Any other ways people know about?

    Also is it worth it to get a water tank?

    water is 1000L for $3.917201 (most expensive tier)

    A 3000L tank costs ? $900?

    So need to use it when around 100 times when it's almost fully topped up (ideal scenario)?

    If you don't have a pool is it worth getting?

    Is there any point if it's going to be an ip?sounds like extra $maintenance, pumps, gutters, will tenants look after it or appreciate it.
    Are you on town water? Is it for drinking??

    Any plumber would do it. In its simple form is just diverting gutters to tank, throw down crusher dust and get tank in.
    But for it to be worthwhile you'd then need a pump so you can water gardens or then hook it up to toilets

    from almost everyone that has the pump to toilet config... all feedback has been negative. apparently after a while the toilet becomes black...

    I don't want to use it for toilet i just want to water for gardening and lawn.

    in this case is it worth it or not really?

    Yes, I know someone who has a 5000 & then installed another 3000L tanks for their gardens. Well worth it. Install the biggest tank you can reasonably fit in the yard. A good pump is definitely required.

    Slim line pvc tanks are very expensive on a $/litre stored vs round colorbond steel tank.

    My guttering can get overwhelmed I'm missing a downpipe on one quarter of thehouse (bad design) so it's a way of assisting that plus will encourage tenants to water the garden.
    But you make a point worth considering. Thanks

    @Whitecat - Putting a tank in won't improve your guttering overflow issue unless you're adding a downpipe.

    It's a value-add and a consideration for owner occupiers possibly not as much if you have tenants.

    There will be a new additional downpipe to the tank. Originating as close as possible to the corner of the house currently absent of a down pipe
