What is it?

How does it work?

Heat Pump Hot Water

By Rheem

Smart, energy-efficient alternative for areas where a traditional solar water heater may not be suitable.

Rain Water Solutions

Enviro Water Tanks

The use of rainwater conserves the public water supply and helps to reduce stormwater impacts.

Solar Hot Water

Evacuated Tube Systems

Evacuated Tube Solar Systems consist of a ground-mounted storage tank that is installed separately to the tubes mounted on the roof. A small pump circulates the water from the cylinder through the header across the top of the tubes to absorb the maximum available solar energy.

  • Stainless Steel tanks

  • High-efficiency evacuated tube collectors suitable for temperatures as low as -12 Deg C

  • Tubes and tank can be installed separately

Rainwater Solutions

Why purchase a rainwater tank?

Rainwater tanks have a lot of benefits that cannot be ignored. Acquiring a rainwater tank for your home is likely to reduce the money that you usually spend on your water bill. In addition, connecting the water tank to your home appliances, such as the washing machine, will make them more environmentally friendly. Washing machines are usually in use daily, and consume a lot of water. Watering your garden, filling your swimming pool, washing your car, or flushing your toilet.

If you invest in a water tank today, you will be able to start collecting your own water as soon as possible. If there are water restrictions, you will be able to supplement your water use with your tank water. You won’t have to worry about your plants dying if you don’t have enough water left for them, or being fined by the government if you go over your limits.

Rainwater tanks come in various sizes and shapes to fit any area around your property. At Hobbs, we can find the right product as well as fit pumps and accessories.

Things to consider with a rainwater tank to get the most benefit out of your tank are...

Rainwater Pumps

Almost all rainwater harvesting systems operating in Australia these days have pumps. Pumping systems can be set up on rainwater harvesting tanks to increase the pressure of the flow of water to other parts of the home, and they will need to be set up in case a household has appliances that will not work unless the water pressure is high enough.

Rain Bank System

RainBank is an automatic controller for rainwater harvesting supplying water for toilet and laundry applications and can save up to 40% of a household's mains water use, helping to conserve water. A RainBank system automatically selects the water source with rainwater given priority over the mains supply.
