Weekly Water Saving Tips

Limit your household water consumption to a set amount per day – try 20 kilolitres a month of 600 litres a day


Indigenous grasses like buffalo and kweek need half the amount of water that kikuyu requires.

Fit a length of 19mm hose to your washing machine waste outlet and use the water on your garden.

Playing under a sprinkler or with a hose is fun for the kids in summer but it wastes up to 1 000 litres of water an hour.

Don’t cut your lawn shorter than 3cm to 4cm, so the blades of grass can shade each other, reducing water loss.

Water plants sparingly. Water plants only when necessary. More plants die from over-watering than from under-watering.

Soaking saves. Soak pots and pans rather than let them sit under running water while you scrape them clean.
