Home Water Saving Tips

  • Keep a jug of cool water in the fridge instead of running the tap
  • Insulate your water pipes so hot water is more readily available
  • Avoid pouring water down the drain - use it to water plants or fill your pet's dish
  • Installing a low-flow kitchen faucet to save up to 10 L per minute
  • Only run your dishwasher or washing machine when it is full
  • If washing dishes by hand, fill the sink rather than let the water run freely
  • Keep showers to five minutes or less
  • Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth or shaving
  • Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily—tissues, wipes, and hygiene products belong in the wastebin
  • Repairing a leaky toilet can save 100 L per day
  • Installing an ultra-low flow toilet can save up to 15 L per flush

Outdoor water saving tips

Lawn
  • Lawns only need about 2.5 cm (1 in.) of water per week. A deep soaking will encourage roots to grow deep
  • Shorter daily watering will result in shallow roots and weaker grass
  • Cut your grass to 5 to 7.5 cm (2 to 3 in.) tall to provide shade for roots and to help prevent evaporation
  • Grass cycle by leaving the clippings on the lawn. This will help with water retention and provide your lawn with nutrients
Irrigation
  • Check for leaks in pipes, faucets, and hoses
  • Do not leave sprinklers or hoses unattended
  • Consider installing irrigation devices such as micro and drip irrigation, soaker hoses, and sprinklers with timing devices
  • Always use a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle when watering plants or washing your car
  • Ensure that sprinklers are watering vegetation, not driveways and sidewalks
  • Consider utilizing 'smart' technology, climate or soil-based controllers that evaluate weather or soil moisture conditions and then adjust the irrigation schedule to meet the specific needs of your landscape
  • Install a rain shutoff switch, these inexpensive devices can be retrofitted to almost any system and will prevent your system from turning on while it's raining
Garden
  • Minimize lawn area by using ground covers other than grass
  • Select drought-tolerant flora and group according to their water needs
  • Use mulch to retain moisture and reduce weed growth
  • Use rain barrels to collect rain water for outdoor plant use
