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

  • Use a shower timer to reduce time spent in the shower
  • Use a pool cover to stop water evaporation
