Realising some of us are on tank water, some town water, some in drought and some with water restrictions.
There's always some tip that someone's done we haven't thought of to conserve water... so what are some of the things we do(or have done) to conserve water?
Here's mine (past as we've had so much rain our tanks keep overflowing... sad but true): In no real order...
1. Ensure gutters, piping and tank covers are clean and clear (heavy due can run a bit in) and all tap have NO DRIPS.
2. Bathing - cleanest first, dirtest last (old way but when in drought) leave in the bath water.
3. Loo flush only for number 1, and use the bath water to flush other... one big flush per day (if the loo is on the tank)
4. Bath water bucketed out to plants
5. Wash up once per day or every second day.
6. Scrape plates don't rinse, in fact don't rinse anything
7. Use dishwater to wash down surfaces before washing up (dependent on dirtiest)
8. If not too bad off with water but watching it - take a bucket into the shower, then use the water to clean the bathroom or water plants
9. Fill a bottle with water instead of glass and drink all you put in a glass.
10. Use a laundromat instead of washing at home.
11. When washing fruit and veg, do it at the same time and put the plug in the sink and wash in the water rather than let it run down the sink
12. When showering if really desperate, wet, soap up turn off water and only turn on to rinse quickly.
Oops nearly forgot don't leave tap running, when washing hands or teeth.
If I really have a good think there's more but I'm sure some of you can come up with some more?
