Here are a few water saving tips:

In and around the house / business

  • Turn the tap off between washing your face, brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Taking a five-minute shower a day, instead of a bath
  • Boil only as much water as you need, do not fill the kettle
  • Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Eg. when disposing of tissues, insects and other waste that can go in the bin.
  • Use "grey water" - used water from baths, washing machines and other safe sources - to flush your toilet.
  • Use a bucket rather than a hose to wash your car.
  • Do not pour paint and chemicals down the drain.
  • Farmers must ensure that they keep toxic insecticides away from water sources and streams.
  • Factories should take care of how they discharge mercury and other heavy metals into waste water.
  • People living in rural areas should be careful not to use the river or river bank as a toilet.

In the garden

  • Always water your plants during the early morning hours or in the evening
  • Every time you boil an egg, save the cooled water for your houseplants
  • Focus on indigenous and non-water-consumptive alien plants (but not invasive alien plants).
  • Water gardens less frequently, but water well.
  • Remove invasive alien plants on your property, they often sap water.
  • Roof water can also be profitably stored in tanks, for watering gardens.
  • Use "grey water" - used water from baths, washing machines and other safe sources - to water your garden
