Rainwater Harvesting – Water Tanks for Rainwater Collection

Amplitude_Media_Photography_Product_Shots_4
In Australia drought and water conservation are of constant concern. We are a dry continent; in fact we’re the driest inhabited continent on Earth. Every drop of water is precious, and investing in rainwater harvesting is of benefit to both individual households and our nation as a whole. Rainwater harvesting simply means the collection of rainwater for re-use, instead of allowing it to run off into the ground. The rain water collected has a myriad of uses; gardening, irrigation, water features, livestock, washing, bathing and heating. With minimal treatment, rainwater can also be used as drinking water, and is just as safe as the water that comes out of your tap. Just as solar power provides free energy, rainwater harvesting provides free water. Not only will it reduce your utility bill, it increases the sustainability of our reservoir and groundwater supplies.  Rainwater harvesting means that you can bypass water restrictions to some extent, using your own supply instead of a limited supply of main water. Not only is Australia a land of droughts, in many areas floods are a constant concern. Without rainwater harvesting, almost all flood water is wasted as it washes away and becomes contaminated. Not only does rainwater harvesting find use from this abundance of water, it reduces the burden on storm drains and other water safety measures. Domestically, the most common method of rainwater harvesting are roof catchment systems. Rain that falls on the roof is siphoned off v...

Buy local timber to avoid trouble: it works best, looks great and lasts longer

portfolio6
Have you ever stood on a timber deck and been concerned for your safety? Following a spate of “deck disasters” a group of Queensland timber merchants are encouraging consumers to use locally grown and manufactured building materials instead of imported products of dubious quality and origin. The Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network says builders and DIYers often receive bad advice, being told a timber species is suitable for certain applications when it’s not and sometimes sold a dodgy product. Spokesperson for the Network Rod McInnes said Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network members sell fit for purpose and true to label timber products grown and processed in Queensland from legally sourced logs grown in well managed forests. “This timber meets our high Australian standards so you can be confident that it will deliver the best performance,” said Rod McInnes. “Using Queensland grown timber also removes any risk of not complying with the Federal Illegal Logging Prohibition Regulation that started in 2014,” he said “Consumers can rest assured that they’ve bought the right product for the job when the Accredited Queensland Timber Product logo is featured on the packaging.” Responding to a market need for practical advice all Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network staff receive training on the latest building regulations and technical aspects of timber application and use from Australia’s leading timber experts. “So you get the right product, the right a...

How Lasers Are Used For Treating Varicose Veins

hello3
Varicose veins are enlarged and swollen veins that are visible underneath the skin’s surface. Laser treatment is usually used to treat varicose veins and works by using a highly focused beam of light to heat the varicose veins to the point of scarring. This scarring damages the veins, causing them to wither and close, eventually dying and becoming no longer visible. There are two major types of laser treatments for varicose veins, these are: Simple Laser Treatment – this treatment is used for treating veins close to the surface of the skin, such as tiny varicose veins and spider veins. It works by applying a laser charge on the skin over which the varicose veins are visible. The objective is to scar the vein without affecting the skin. This treatment is usually safe, painless and highly effective, and is carried out over a number of sessions - usually every 6 to 12 weeks. The spacing is to minimise the effects of the lasers on the skin by giving it enough time to heal. For more details, see this article from laser veins brisbane. Endovenous Laser Treatment – this treatment is used for treating larger varicose veins, especially those buried deep beneath the skin surface. It works by making an incision on the skin through which a thin tube (catheter) is inserted. This catheter is then guided by an ultrasound so that it enters the varicose vein and is positioned correctly. Once in position, a laser is passed through the catheter and into the varicose vein and begins delivering s...
