Do I really need a grey water tank?
While not essential for all caravanners, grey water tanks may expand the options available for off grid camping. Whether you need a grey water tank for your caravan depends on several factors, including the places you plan to visit and local regulations.
Not only is grey water seen as a hazard to natural water ways and plant life, it can be an unsightly and unhygienic mess upon your camping landscape if not properly contained. In addition to the unpleasant nature of grey water, it is fast becoming a requirement in many of Australia’s more natural and preserved locations for mandatory installation and use of grey water tanks during your stay.
