It is best to check with your local government to see if any guidelines or restrictions apply for installing rain water tanks on your property.
There are regulations surrounding the connection of rainwater tanks to property water supplies. Meaning in most cases the works must be undertaken by a licensed plumber. If however the tank is being used simply to water your garden you may not be required to engage a plumber.
Different water tank types require different methods of installation and even different configuration.
Installing Multiple Water Tanks
Manufacturers of rainwater tanks recognised the need for consumers to be able to increase the water harvesting capacities of their tank if required. Incorporated in the design of most water tanks is the ability to install multiple tanks, and to add on additional tanks to your pre-existing tank.
The amount of space you have available on your property for an additional tank is an important consideration when deciding if you should have multiple tanks installed. If space is limited and you need to conserve a large amount of water, you may want to look into alternative water storage solutions to traditional above ground tanks. Water can be harvested into specially designed bladders stored in the wasted space under your house. Underground tanks are also supplied, some designed so vehicles can drive over them!
