Rainwater tanks

Brisbane City Council's rainwater tank rebate program has ended.

With more than 90,000 rain water tanks installed across Brisbane at a cost of $65 million, the program has achieved its goals and helped make our city one of the most water efficient in the developed world.

Installing a rainwater tank will save you water and money. A rainwater tank provides you with the following benefits:

  • free water saving you money
  • soft water that lathers easily, saving on soap and detergent
  • extra water available to:
    • water gardens and lawns
    • wash cars
