Rainwater is a great resource which can be stored and preserved for the long-term utility in Australia if the right method and procedure have been used. There was a time when people were not aware of it but after a while since then, more and more Aussies are getting familiar with the benefits and multi-uses of rainwater in daily routine. Hence, various techniques are being used to preserve it, out of which above the surface and below surface harvesting systems are two of the common few.
As the weather is mostly dry in Australia therefore, rainwater is collected from hard surfaces above the ground such as rooftops and grounds in to a tank or a system so when the need arises, this water could be used as an alternative to the regular water as well as to restrict the usage of the regular water to the absolute necessity. This phenomenon also leaves a healthy impact on the overall environment which is one of its most lucrative benefits considering the globalisation and revving up global warming.

Mean of Compost
Water collected through rainwater harvesting system in Australia could aid in de-composting and hence, turn out to be a great alternative in this regard as you do not have to use regular water to serve this purpose at hand. The rainwater will break down the compost similar to that of the tap water.
One of the great ways to add aesthetics to your house in Australia – landscaping, and gardening. Generally, rainwater is considered a natural source of the watering plant then why can’t we store it and use it later for the same purpose. A good water catchment system is required for this purpose else you can put the plant at the end of doorways or hill where the rainwater would eventually end up.
Rainwater is a safe resource to be given to your pets and animals or even livestock provided it has been collected in a safe tank through a secure mechanism. You can even use it to bathe your pets as well and it would not harm them at all.
If you are fond of gardening then rainwater in Australia can also be used to rinse the produce from the personal garden. It would work fine on both vegetables and fruits. Because a garden consumes too much quantity of the regular or tap water, using an alternative to the regular water supply would help you in preserving and using it to the optimum.
Washing Cars & Equipment
All the heavy machinery which requires cleaning or washing can be entertained by using the rainwater preserved through the rainwater harvesting system. Especially when it comes to the car wash at home, or cleaning the tractors or trailers or other lawn mowing equipment which can be found commonly in your garage or shed of the house.
Outdoor Water Feature
Rainwater can also be used as an outdoor water feature in Australia such as in pools or fountains, to name a few. But make sure that you filter such water type before using it as a water feature else there would be a lot more debris in the pool or fountain than usual.
Aussies living in rural areas or those places which are more prone to wildfire, rainwater serves as a great mean to pacify the fire. Just ensure that you have a well functioning and accessible pump installed along with your rainwater harvesting system so when the time comes, the emergency need could be met.
Also, 25% of regular water usage goes down to flushing toilets which is too much consumption. Hence, substituting this water type with the rainwater would help you in preserving the 25% of your all-purpose water. You can interlink the rainwater usage system with the house plumbing system or find some other way to flush the toilet through it.
