The three main areas you can make savings to are in your shower, laundry and toilet.

Saving in your Shower

  • Check WELS Rating for your existing showerhead.                                         For more information click here
  • Test the flow rate of your showerhead.
  • Reduce flow rate with a low-flow showerhead or a flow restrictor.
  • Time your showers.

Saving Water in your Laundry

  • Make every wash a full load.
  • Try make every load a cold wash.
  • Install a grey water diverter and reuse the laundry water.
  • Install a tap aerator on your laundry tap to reduce the flow rate.

Saving Water in your Toilet

  • Check your cistern isn't leaking.
  • If you have a dual-flush cistern, use the half-flush whenever possible.
  • Single flush toilets, to reduce water consumption put a filled water bottle inside the cistern. (This helps reduce water consumption)

Things to remember

  • 1 square meter of roof x 1mm of rain fall = 1 litre of rain water captured.
  • A leaky tap in your home or office can waste up to 60 litres per hour, thats half your daily usage.
  • Take shorter showers. Every minute you spend in the shower uses seven litres of water, Reduce your shower by 1 minute and you’ll save about 2,500 of water a year.
  • Water your plants thoroughly but less frequently to encourage deep root growth and drought tolerance.
  • Mulching around trees, vegetable and flower beads to reduce summer evaporation losses from the soil.
  • Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better than if it is closely clipped.
