Splash-tastic habits


Adopting water-saving habits not only preserves this precious resource but also contributes to lower utility bills and a more sustainable environment. By incorporating simple practices you can make a meaningful impact on water conservation while enjoying economic benefits. Here are some tips for water-wise habits you can adopt in your home:

  • Take shorter showers
  • Turn the taps off while brushing your teeth
  • If washing up, only use enough water for the dishes you have
  • Scrape dishes before putting them in the dishwasher (instead of rinsing)
  • Only wash full loads (especially if your washing machine is an older model)
  • Be vigilant about fixing leaks
  • Change watering times to morning or early evening, to minimise the amount of water that is evaporated
  • Keep an eye on your water meter and stay aware of your usage, especially during the dry season
  • Use air blowers to sweep the driveway, instead of a hose
  • Keep your pool or spa covered in the dry season to minimise the amount of water that is evaporated
