Mark Harland lives in the Fremantle area and started ‘Water Capture’ in 2008.
“My aim is for more people in Perth to be aware of the water saving options around the home.”
Mark can visit your home and give advice and a quote regarding both Greywater and Rainwater.
Rainwater is a free natural resource that falls on the homes roof. In many country and rural areas it is the only source of water for the house. It is considered precious and needs to sustain the house throughout the year. Perth’s population is rapidly increasing; our average annual rainfall is decreasing meaning less water in our dams. Our underground water reserves are being depleted, meaning Governments are needing to find alternatives to supply West Australians with water.
Desalinisation plants are power hungry and have an environmental impact. As home owners we have a choice. We can supplement our homes water usage by installing a Rainwater harvesting system.
Rainwater can be stored and used for gardens or pumped into the house and used for toilet flushing, washing machines, showers or whole of home.
‘Water Capture’ can install a variety of rainwater tanks, water pumps, water filters, switching devices and pressure vessels to suit your individual rainwater requirements.
Greywater in Western Australia generally is sent to the gardens around your house via dripline irrigation.
Grey water is classified as the water coming from the homes basins, vanities, troughs, washing machines, laundry and shower/bath. Kitchen and dishwasher waste water contains high amounts of fats and solids and cannot be sent to Grey water systems.
Approximately 60% of in-house water consumption goes to the bath/shower and the washing machine. That represents about 215 litres per household per day in Perth. This water can be captured in a Grey water system and diverted to your homes gardens. Again, we are reducing the need for scheme water when we can use the homes waste water on our gardens.
Water Capture can recommend a suitable Grey water system for your home. With many years of experience our business can provide a complete package with drawings and council applications, installation of the system, the garden greywater irrigation and filtration, council inspection, a handover manual and ongoing maintenance if required.
What people are saying...
I wanted to convert our concrete pool into a water tank and plumb it to the house, but it was just an idea. Discussing it with Mark it became a reality. I found he was thoughtful about how it could be done. He looked for the best options both financially and practically. He turned up when he said he would, and completed the job within budget and in the time frame that he had set. I don’t have a pool to clean anymore and I have rainwater plumbed to the house for my showers. Mark’s creativity and integrity made this all possible. I can’t recommend Water Capture highly enough. Thanks Mark!

It was a pleasure to work with Mark in building the rainwater tank using the Versitanks and that the finished result has more than met our expectations - not only have we significantly increased the size of our vegie garden but we have had sufficient water to carry our entire veggie garden (which consists of three 'plots') through what was a very hot and dry summer. We also decided to build a small pond in which we have added some water lilies and fish. This too has been a source of great delight to my wife and myself. The little top-up water required is supplied from the rainwater tank.
Just yesterday as we were planting out a mix of broccoli, beans, sugar snap peas and chard my wife remarked on the joy and satisfaction these changes resulting from replacing the swimming pool with the Tank and garden have given us.

Thank you for the fantastic job ‘Water Capture’ did on converting our pool into a rainwater storage tank. It was nice to see such fine workmanship, attention to detail, and great execution of the job. The finished job looks amazing. We were particularly impressed with the way you left the site each day, tidy and organised.
Thank you also for keeping us constantly informed of what you were doing and making suggestions along the way as to how to best benefit from the conversion - such as using the collected water for the downstairs toilet.
We look forward to watering our garden in the summer months with the collected rainwater and the subsurface irrigation system you installed, GUILT FREE!!
We will be recommending you to anyone we meet that is looking to do the same thing!
Best wishes with your growing business.

We got Mark from 'Water Capture' to install a rainwater tank and a greywater system to our house in Fremantle. The toilets and washing machine are now connected to rain water. When there is rainwater in the tank it gets pumped into the house. The greywater system feeds our garden. Now, every time we have a shower all that water goes on the plants, not to waste down the drain. We now feel guilt free having a long shower in Summer. We feel great about all the water savings we'll now get in the future. Thanks Mark
Mark from Water Capture installed a grey water system in our house 8 years ago and it is still going strong. He has serviced it for us in this time and it is still going strong. I have always found Mark to be very professional and easy to deal with, as well as very knowledgable. I would happily recommend him to other people who are looking to go down the grey water route.
Mark from Water Capture does a remarkable job when it comes to the supplying and installing a rainwater and greywater reuse systems for homes as he has been working in this field since 2005. Water Capture is a Greyflow Certified Installation company and as a result can offer 2 years warranty (instead of the standard one year) on all Greyflow and rainwater capture products installed.
