Rain water tanks and water scarcity

It appears that people of certain cities in Australia have demonstrably understood the need for storing rain water for many of their uses. Especially, residents of cities like Brisbane have rain water tanks in their houses. Rainfall in these cities is less than the national and global averages and hence, there is water scarcity during some months of the year. So, whenever rainfall is there, the water that falls from the rooftops of the homes is collected in these water tanks. Water Tanks can be purchased throughout Australia and most parts of Brisbane from companies like Tankworks, Bunnings or The Water Tank Factory, and the water collected is used for gardening, for swimming pools and for purposes like washing vehicles, clothes and vessels. Thus, the pressure on the public water supply is reduced. The water that is supplied through the public water supply system can be exclusively used for drinking and cooking purposes. So, you need not incur more expenses towards your water bill. Some Brisbane residents use the water stored in water tanks for drinking and cooking purposes also by purifying it.
