Home Living : February 24th 2009
HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, February 24, 2009 1 Rain in water waste HOMELIVING Plan today for tomorrow by installing a rainwater tank. That way, when the rains come, you can make the most of it by capturing run-off from the roof. Rainwater tanks save drinking water and also help protect the environment by reducing stormwater run-off. Water captured in a rainwater tank can be used for watering gardens, washing cars and for filling swimming pools, spas and ornamental ponds. A licensed plumber can also connect a tank to the internal plumbing system so rainwater can be used to flush toilets and for washing machines. Sydney Water offers customers a rebate on rainwater tanks with a capacity of 2000 litres or more. Depending on the size of the tank, when it was installed and whether it has been connected to toilets or a washing machine, homeowners may be eligible to claim up to $1500. As part of Sydney Water's Love Your Garden service, a qualified horticulturalist can give advice about suitable rainwater tanks for the home. The service costs from $33. To register for a Love Your Garden service, call 1300 307 130. To apply for a rainwater tank rebate or to find out more about Sydney Water's rebates and offers, visit www.sydneywater.com.au/garden Leaving them high and dry Created in 1945 by Australian Lance Hill, the rotary clothesline, dubbed the Hills Hoist, revolutionised suburban backyards. Today, an innovation, the Hills Portable Clothesline, is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. It is available in two sizes, catering for both the growing family and apartment dwellers. The portable clothesline is lightweight and can be folded flat for easy storage over the provided wall mount or door bracket. Non-slip feet, a robust latching system and a balcony tether strap, ensure the clothesline's stability. The hanging spaces in both leg braces maximise the overall drying capacity and time efficiency. The line comes with Hills Smart Pegs that ensure a tight grip without harming clothes. Both clotheslines come in a durable powder-coated granite-pearl finish. The medium-sized portable 120 clothesline provides 12m of line space (1.3m high, 2.1m long and 0.7m wide). The larger portable 170 offers an extra five metres of line (1.5m high, 2.4m long and 0.8m wide). The recommended retail prices are $200 and $230, respectively, and include a three-year guarantee. The Hills Portable Clothesline is available from hardware stores. ............................................... Enclose your EXISTING patio.
