“Incorrectly installed rainwater tanks can kill”
A shocked Melbourne mother has issued a warning to other parents with slimline rainwater tanks in their backyards after one fell where her five year old son frequently plays.
The Plumbing Industry Commission investigator, who spoke to the mother, said the woman’s son could have been fatally injured.
‘A full 3,000 litre tank weighs close to three tonnes, making it impossible to move and dangerous for anybody stuck underneath,’ the investigator said.
Plumbing Industry Commissioner Tony Arnel said while slimline rainwater tanks are an efficient way to reduce a household’s dependence on mains water, householders need to be aware of the possible risks of them falling over and ensure they are properly installed and fastened.
‘A rainwater tank does not have to be positioned by a licensed or registered plumbing practioner, however a plumbing practioner is the only person qualified to carry out the plumbing work associated with the tank’s installation,’ Mr Arnel said.
‘I urge all plumbing practioners that are connecting a tank after it has been positioned to check the stability and safety of the tank.'”
