World Water Week

This week, 13 - 17 March it is World Water Week. South Africa is facing one of the longest droughts in 30 years, so now it is more important than ever before to save water where possible!

Here are a few tips on how you can do your part to save water:

  • Use a cup when brushing your teeth and don't leave the tap running
  • Close the tap when shaving or when washing your hands
  • Do not hose down any surfaces or wash your car
  • Take shorter showers or use less water in the tub when taking a bath
  • Use grey water to wash your car
  • Report public water leaks to the Municipality
  • Install flow reducing valves on your taps
  • Put a brick in your cistern to reduce water flow
  • Install a geyser blanket for insulation, to save hot water.
  • Young children can jump through the same bath water
  • When doing laundry, match the volume of water used with the load of laundry
  • Check if you have a water efficient washing machine
  • Plug your sink when washing dishes instead of running the tap
  • Using less dish-washing liquid will reduce the need for rinsing
  • Plug the sink when rinsing vegetables. The same water can be used again to water plants.
  • Keep a large bottle of tap water in the fridge for cold water instead of running the tap.
  • Adjust sprinklers to water plants and not the pavement.
  • Cover your pool so the water doesn’t evaporate.
