Water is our most precious resource and there are a number of ways you can save water around your home:

  • Use water wise plants in the garden – they need less water

  • Fit flow regulators to kitchen and bathroom taps and shower heads

  • Read your water meters to help detect leaks in your water pipes

  • Follow the watering roster

  • When buying a new washing machine, always look for the highest energy and water efficient star rating

  • Always mulch garden beds to conserve water and reduce evaporation

  • Use a shower timer to reduce time spent in the shower

  • Use a pool cover to stop water evaporation
