Fix Dripping Taps
A few taps in your home with an occasional drip or two may not be considered a plumbing issue. However, each drip wastes water and your money. If not repaired dripping taps can waste litres of water each day. Help do your part to conserve water and make having dripping taps fixed a priority.
Reduce Shower Times
There is no denying a long, hot shower is the ideal way to start or end a cold winters day. Do your part to save water by reducing shower times to a few minutes. If everyone in your household was to keep their shower times to a few minutes this can save tens of thousands of litres of water each year.
Collect Rainwater to Water Plants
Sheltered outdoor areas such as a patio or alfresco plus inside your home are all popular places to display plants. Do your part to save water by collecting rainwater in buckets and using this to water these plants.
