Water tanks & watering equipment
The aim of this page is to help Qld residents learn about tools and equipment to store water or deliver water to plants efficiently, and where to buy them.
Your local government authority should be your first port of call for information about watering restrictions, irrigation regulations and related information applicable to your area. Links to many Qld councils are provided on the Regional Pages.
NB: In a water crisis, what's allowed can change frequently. Make yourself aware of current watering rules to avoid fines. Rebate schemes are also changing, so make sure you check with the authorities responsible for the most up-to-date information.
Your rainwater tank could be a death trap, warns Archicentre (an arm of the Australian Institute of Architects). After prolonged rainfall, not only is the tank full and extremely heavy, but the ground supporting it may have been softened. Timber stands are a particular danger and should be checked regularly for signs of deterioration or leaning. Unstable make-shift storages using wheeelie bins or other containers can also be dangerous. Source: Is Your Rainwater Tank Stand Safe? (March 2013)

Productive Gardens have developed the EasiOyYa, an automatic olla watering system. In effect, it allows your plants to water themselves, 24/7.|
EasiOyYa has been adapted from a highly effective, ancient olla method of sub surface irrigation, making the system even more efficient and easy to use - hence the name EasiOyYa!
It's a gravity fed system. Water from a tank travels via tubing to the clay ollas and seeps slowly through the porous terracotta, straight into the root zone of the plants where it's required.
Go away without worry, your plants are being looked after while you're gone! See how EasiOyYa can help you at the WEBSITE

Are you a pot plant killer? Getting the watering right is one of the keys to lush, healthy indoor plants. Moisture Matic® pot watering devices were developed to make that easier.|
Simply insert the probe into the potting mix (Australian Standard recommended) and fill the reservoir with clean tap water. The unique SPONGEWICKTM technology delivers a continual supply of moisture without sogginess. It also reduces nutrient leaching and mess from spillage and overflow.
"Self-watering" containers can be expensive, and might not suit your decor. With Moisture Matic®, you can quickly & easily convert plain pots and planters you already own (with rims up to 3cm) into self-watering containers.
Moisture Matic® is designed primarily for use with indoor plants, but can be used to provide supplemental watering to potted plants outdoors including vegetables and herbs.
