With the low dam levels in the Western Cape, the issue of saving water is on everyone’s minds. But how exactly can we save water?
Here are 5 tips to get you going:
- Half flush the toilet (after pushing the handle down, pull it up immediately).
- Catch the water that is being draining from your washing machine when doing a cycle (Make sure your bucket is big enough because 25L fills up n 10seconds! You may want to use a big bin).
- Shorten your showers.
- Keep a bucket in the shower to catch the water. This can then be used to water plants and flush the toilet.
- Use rain barrels to catch the rain water.
