FAQs | Watersorter Rainwater Tanks Supply & Installation Nelson

Will I need a consent?

Most situations, no. The rainwater tank sizes featured in our website are well below consent requirements. However, if you’re considering plumbing the rainwater into your home for toilet and laundry use, then yes. 

Is there a warranty?

Yes, the Rainwater Tanks all have warranties and length of time varies depending on the product. The workmanship installing the Rainwater Tank is also guaranteed. Contact us for more information.

Do I need to be home when my Rainwater Tank is being installed and will you need to access the house?

No, most installs you won’t need to be present and we don’t need to access your house.

How much pressure will I have from the Rainwater Tank?

This will depend on the tank style and gradient of your land. There’s an option to have a tank stand installed or an in-line pump to increase pressure. Soak hoses still have reasonable effectiveness with low pressure systems. Discuss this with your WaterSorter Tank installer.

Is there a maintenance offer?

Yes, we can visit annually, check the system and clean if required. Most systems won’t need servicing depending on the condition of your gutters, downpipes and vegetation around the roof area where rain is collected.

When’s the best time to have a Rainwater Tank installed?

Best option is to have the Rainwater Tank installed no later than Spring, so your new Rainwater Tank is full for the dry Summer months. In general, any time throughout the year is suitable though.

How long will it take to have a Rainwater Tank installed?

To scope the job this will take around 1 hour. There’s lots to consider to best suit your property and needs. The Rainwater Tank install will take approximately 2-4 hours depending on the size of the project and accessibility.
