Go green with a rainwater collection system in Portland!

Dubbed by some as “the place young people go to retire”, Portland is often represented as a city of coffee-loving, vegan hipsters on bicycles. While this stereotype is somewhat exaggerated, the city has often been named as one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world. As a Portlandian, it is your duty to help “keep Portland weird” – and this means that at the very least you need to buy a rainwater barrel.

While Portland does have very wet winters, its average annual rainfall is 36.0 inches – not all that much more than the U.S. national average of 28.1 inches. Notably, most of this rain does fall in winter, with summer actually being quite warm and dry. In fact, it is common for only 4-5 inches of rain to fall between June and September. Taking this into account, it is easy to see why water holding tanks are so popular, as storing water is a great idea in this city. If you want to contribute to Portland’s green reputation, but do not know exactly how to store water, Aussietanks can help. We have a great range of high quality portable water tanks for sale, and they are perfect for suburban backyard use.

Our water storage barrels come in three sizes: 120 gal, 260 gal and 530 gal. These can all be employed for a wide range of purposes. Suitable for use as potable water tanks, the smaller sizes are perfect for lengthy camping trips, or for times when you need to camp out in protest of that fast food chain threatening to set up shop next door to your favorite café. You will find that our larger water storage tanks are idea for backyard use, whether you want to be able to water your organic vegetable garden over summer, or provide an environmentally sustainable pond for your free range ducks. Our water tanks are characterized by the fact that they are very easy to install, as well as move – if need be. In fact, they can be set up in as little as 20 minutes, and there is no need to call in a plumber as you will be able to do it all yourself.
