WaterSmart Sustainability

Why Collect Your Own Rainwater?

A lot has changed in recent years. Bans on outdoor water use have become part and parcel of life today.

Filling the pool, kids running through sprinklers, washing the car and boat, watering the garden and cleaning the house and deck… all require one thing – water!

But turning on the tap isn’t a given anymore, as we can no longer take supply for granted.

"Since the start of 2020, the [Auckland] region has received significantly less rainfall than normal. This is having a big impact on our water supply. On 15 April, the total volume of water stored in our dams dropped below 50 per cent for the first time in more than 25 years. We need to preserve what’s left."

Water Sustainability Concerns Us All

If you don’t have an alternative supply when water bans are announced, you have no choice but to halt any activities that involve turning on the outside tap. So serious is the threat of running dry, that in Auckland residents must comply or face a $20,000 fine.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. We have many cost-effective, slim and stylish solutions for collecting your own rainwater. Not only do our vulnerable waterways reap the benefits, but we do too!

It’s time to be self-sufficient, and do our part for water sustainability by collecting and reusing rainwater.

By saving water we also save –

  • Our streams and vulnerable waterways
  • Money
  • Stormwater infrastructure
  • Our gardens, trees and lawns too!

Every new house in the Wellington region is now required to have at least 2000 litres of water storage onsite. Not only does this reduce dependence on mains water supply, it ensures that in the event of an earthquake, all new houses will at least have water onsite.

Sustainable Coastlines

We’re passionate about water sustainability and protecting our ponds and streams near urban areas, while sensitive to your need for innovative stormwater solutions via our Aquacomb® and FenceTank™ systems.

We are proud to have partnered with Sustainable Coastlines, a New Zealand charity committed to keeping New Zealand’s waterways clean.

End-of-life Recycling

Tanks manufactured and distributed by Stormwater Systems are made of high-quality polyethylene. The manufacturing process we follow produces zero waste and the tanks are 100% recyclable at the end of their life. Aquacomb® pods are made from recycled plastic (when we can source it).

By Kiwis, For Kiwis

FenceTank™ is proudly New Zealand made. It has been designed and manufactured in Auckland with the intent to provide a rainwater harvesting solution for Kiwis right from Cape Reinga to Bluff.

Stylish And Discrete Water Collection Solutions

When most people think of rainwater tanks they picture green or black round monstrosities, taking up a huge amount of space and imposing on surroundings.

But WaterSmart provides smarter water collection solutions that are stylish and discrete. Some are completely hidden with Aquacomb©, while FenceTank™ offers a dual purpose.
