Five top water saving tips

Follow these daily water saving tips to help preserve our precious resource this season and beyond.

Tip 1. Choose the ‘quick wash’ cycle to maximize economies when you only have half a load of clothes ready to wash.

Tip 2. Wash your fruit and vegetables in a tub in the sink and then use the excess water on your plants afterwards.

Tip 3. Water your garden between 6-8pm for best results. Your plants will appreciate a good soaking after the harsh sunbeams from the day.

Tip 4. Concrete doesn’t need to be hosed. Use your broom to clean driveways and paths. Your arm muscles will thank you for the little elbow grease required.

Tip 5. Halve your shower time and save thousands of litres of water a year. Now that should give you something to sing about in the bathroom. Just remember to skip the encore!
