October is always known as the rainy spring month in our village and it would be the perfect time to invest in a JoJo tank to harvest rainwater for dry summer months. Harvested rainwater is considered a very reliable way to save water. JoJo tanks offer the ideal solution to reduce your municipal water consumption, save money and have fresh water for the garden.

What is rainwater harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting is the process of collecting rainwater and storing it in a safe way for future use. Rainwater can be collected from different surfaces and platforms, but it is mostly collected from rooftops and gutters.
How JoJo tanks work
JoJo tanks are made from high-quality, UV-resistant polyethylene and come in a range of size. They are built for safely storing water and other liquids. They work on a modular system, which lets you set up the tank, connect it to your gutters, and store hundreds of litres of harvested rainwater. Thatch roof houses are tricky to set up the system, but a plan can be made. You can contact Chris Danzell Landscapes on 084 553 9832, and they will be able to assist you with recommending installation companies.
