Saving Water

Water is a precious resource, not only is it difficult to come by in some parts of the world but processing water so that it is clean and drinkable is an ongoing drain on energy resources. Water conservation is an important part of green living, and it will also save you money on your household water bills!

Don't let water run while shaving or brushing your teeth.

If you have a shower over a bath, use the plug while you shower, the water collected will soak and relax your feet, and you can use the collected water to water your house plants.

Placing a household brick in your toilet water systern will save you about a litre of water every flush!

Check that your home is leak-free, many homes have hidden water leaks. Reading your meter before and after a suitable period will reveal leaks. Make sure all taps and water using devices such as dish washers are off, read your water meter and go out for a few hours, when you return if the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak. Call a plumber!!
