The benefits of installing a JoJo tank

They’re big, plastic and often green in colour. No, it’s not a meagre attempt at describing an Incredible Hulk figurine but instead that of JoJo tanks – a piece of equipment that has become a common occurrence in most people’s front or backyards.

Most JoJo’s are collectively filled to the brim with all the rain that fell over the last couple of months as the weather slowly starts to get warmer, which paves the way for the use of solar panels to power appliances. Imagine pay double digits on your monthly electricity and water bill!

Gumtree outlines why JoJo tanks are beneficial:

It saves water

One of the most significant plus point is the amount of water than can be saved, that would otherwise have been lost in the drain. The collected rain water is used on things like flushing the toilet, filling the swimming pool and doing the washing.

Reduced bill

They come in all shapes and sizes, with a very simply purpose which is to save you possibly thousands of rands on your monthly water bill. One of the biggest vertical storage tanks can hold up to as much as 20 000-litres of water, requiring no need for unnecessary use of normal household water.

Adds value

If you’re in the process of selling your home, the installation of a JoJo tank is a tick in the box for prospective buyers and adds extra value to the home.

No water shortage

In the event that a water shortage should occur, the JoJo can act as a backup system and can still supply the household.
