Here are some tips on how you can save water :

    • Install a low-flow shower head and tap aerators on all taps.
    • Reduce the time spent having a shower
    • Repair leaking taps and pipes
    • Wash your vehicle using a bucket of water
    • Flush toilets only when necessary.
    • Install a multi-flush or dual-flush mechanism in the toilet. A multi-flush device allows the user to choose exactly how much water goes to waste when pressing the handle. A dual-flush device has a short flush button for liquids and a longer flush button for solids.
    • Plant water-wise indigenous plants.
    • Water gardens only in early morning or the evening and only when necessary.
    • Install garden drip irrigation on flower beds and sprayers on lawns.
    • Collect rainwater for re-using on the garden or washing the car.
    • Use a broom instead of a hosepipe when cleaning driveways or patios.
    • Insulate hot water pipes so that not too much water is wasted when waiting for water to get hot.
    • Cover your swimming pool to reduce water evaporation.
