Save Water @ Home

 

Conserve Water – Save Money – Every Drop Counts

Check taps and pipes for leaks
A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 80 litres of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of litres.

Don’t use the toilet as an ashtray or rubbish bin
Every time you flush a cigarette butt, earbud,  facial tissue or other small bit of trash, 20 litres of water is wasted.

Check your toilets for leaks
Put a little food colouring in your cistern. If, without flushing, the colour begins to appear in the bowl within 30 minutes, you have a leak that should be repaired immediately.
Most replacement parts are inexpensive and easy to install.
