Chris has gazzumped me as I begin to write so I will just add that perhaps if the structure of charges for water were changed so that excess water ( say in excess of 150 litres per day per occupant) incurred a far, far greater fee, use of water tanks would become a more viable choice. As one who has lived for nearly 4 years under water restrictions greater than Melbourne's present situation, one learns to live comfortably with a more judicious use of this resource. And using tanks is a valuable learning tool; (as Chris says) a means to learn frugality and responsibility.
