Rain Water Tank Connection
Tank Water is amazingly a lot sweeter than town tap water and due to the versatility of our cabins there is a huge variety of options to choose from when it comes to installing a rain water tank. Another great thing about having the Granny Flat built on stumps is that the tank pump can sit underneath the Cabin to keep it out of the weather.
Fresh water tanks can be placed under the cabin or a slim line tank can be placed to the side of the Cabin. We always use colorbond roofing for cabins with tanks to ensure water clarity.
In the photos below you can see a standard slim line tank setup. These slimline tanks are made from plastic and cost around $800 for a 2000 litre tank from Bunnings, or $900 for a 3000 litre tank plus delivery.
Plumbing installation including gutters and downpipes would need to be added to the project budget. For the larger builds with toilet and laundry inside the granny flat, council may require the tanks to be installed and your toilet and laundry be fitted with grey water using the tank water.
