Many households purchased water efficient appliances during the Millennium Drought but now is the time to check if your shower heads, taps, toilets and other appliances are water efficient. When renovating or replacing your devices choose water efficient products with a high-water efficiency rating.
Do full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher.
If you have a rainwater tank, use it to water the garden and for other outdoor uses. This helps to reduce your overall demand. It is important to use the water in your rainwater tank so that it is ready to capture more rainwater when the next rain event occurs.
Check with your local council about rules and regulations regarding rainwater tanks before contacting a licensed plumber to install.
