  1. Thanks for this info!

    I had been wondering about exact figures.

    I have heard rumors about in the future the government charging people water that comes out of tanks that have been issued with a rebate?

    Do you know anything about this?

    Cheers

  2. Banjo, I haven’t heard of this – I reckon there’s be an uproar if they tried to charge for this as specially with the new emissions trading scheme which has been proposed recently.

  3. This is a big saving for every household who owns a rainwater tanks. I guess this is a good way that the government fully supports on this community project.
