The ABC’s of water conservation

A

Audits of office buildings conducted internationally indicate that over 25% of water use in office buildings is accounted for by leakage: taps, urinals, cisterns, piping, valves, pumps

B

Become conscious of the amount of water you use every day

C

Change your water wasteful habits; be a water steward

D

Install a water-saving drip irrigation system to provide a slow, steady and direct supply of water to plants, trees and shrubs

E

Economise on bathroom water consumption: use a timer for a planet-friendly 5-minute shower

F

Flow regulators reduce amount of water used when the tap is running

G

60% of household water re-usable as grey water – perfect to water gardens, wash cars and driveways and flush toilets

H

Harvesting rain, your FREE source of water is a brilliant idea

I

It is irresponsible and wasteful to use expensive drinking water to flush toilets and water lawns

J

JoJo Tanks. The Future of water. Get a rainwater-harvesting tank today

K

Kitchen sink disposals require lots of water to operate properly. Start a compost pile as an alternate method of disposing food waste instead of using a garbage disposal

L

Look for leaks; they’re easy to detect and easy to fix

M

Replace expensive municipal water with FREE from the sky rainwater to water the garden and do all the household cleaning

N

Never water the garden during the heat of the day

O

Organic mulch like shredded leaves, or bark or compost slows evaporation by shading the soil, slows water runoff, keeps down weeds (thus lessening competition from them for water), enriches the soil and improves plant health

P

Pool covers reduce the amount of water you need to keep your pool full and running efficiently

Q

Quit wasting water to clean the driveway; use a rake or a broom

R

Reduce the size of your water-guzzling lawn. Lawn irrigation accounts for about 30% of household water consumption

S

Storage of rainwater in a JoJo tank provides an excellent back-up source of water for emergencies

T

Turn the tap off when you brush your teeth

U

Use a bucket or basin to catch cold water for pot plants while waiting for the water to run hot

V

Verify that your house is free of hidden water leaks. Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read precisely the same then there is a leak

W

Choose water-saving dishwashers and washing machines

X

Xeriscaping is the way landscapers should go

Y

Yes we can each make a difference

Z

Zero-tolerance for water wasters; let’s commit to be water wise
