Did you know that a 750l Slimline JoJo Tank was specifically designed so it could fit through a door? It's ideal for small urban spaces (townhouses) and it's a practical solution for dealing with water outages.  The 750l Slimline JoJo Tank has a diameter of 760mm and a height of 1850mm. And don't forget all the different colours you can get!

Saving water in South Africa is non-negotiable! Harvest rainwater to save water, save money and reduce your impact on South Africa’s environment. Come to Pennypinchers George to get your water tanks.

You can see from #MyJoJoTank installation that you don't need "special" gutters to install a rainwater harvesting tank. Most gutters will work just fine.  For newer homes, it becomes problematic to install a rainwater harvesting system when the gutters are hidden inside the wall. That's why you need to make sure your architect knows that saving water with rainwater harvesting is important to you!  #Rainwaterharvesting #Architecture #Sustainability #SmartLiving

Tadaa! This is our Urban Box soaking up its first bit of rainwater through our new drip irrigation system.  Drip irrigation is an efficient and economical way to water your garden. Another important benefit is it prevents disease by minimising water contact with the leaves, stems, and fruit of plants.

If you have #rainwaterharvesting tank with a LeafEater, don't forget to clear it of any branches and leaves every three to four weeks. That's what we did this weekend!  It's a quick and easy tank maintenance job and it helps keep the water in your tank cleaner. #MyJoJoTank #SaveWater

This tap is one of my favourite feautures of #MyJoJoTank rainwater harvesting installation. The tap is attached to the tank, so it gives us easy access to the water and we can attach a hosepipe to  it. #RainwaterHaravesting #SaveWater #GreenLiving

Now that the weather is cooler, our pool is almost permanently covered (this means we're saving water because there's less evaporation). But it still has to be topped up. We used just over 1000 litres from #MyJoJoTank to top it up.

Trying to get our Jasmine creeper to grow on #MyJoJoTank. Slowly but surely.  Do you have any tips for growing a creeper like this?

The leaves are changing colour and they'll soon be wonderful mulch for the garden. Remember to check your gutters to make sure they're free of debris so that water can flow freely into your JoJo Tank.

Oooh... It's a wet and chilly Jozi morning. Although last night's downpour added just a small amount of water to our JoJo, we still woke up to a gorgeous, rain soaked garden this morning. Don't you just love the smell of fresh rain?

Installing our drip irrigation system (736cm x 160cm) took just under three hours. The first step is to lay out the pipe and the nodules, as you see here. The pipe we use here has nodules on the inside that regulate the flow of water, releasing six litres of water per hour. On The Urban Box, we used drippers instead of the pipe because of the elevation. The drippers allow for easier flow of water.
