Household Water Facts
- A dripping tap can waste up to 2,000 litres a month or 24,000 litres a year — that’s more than an average household uses in a month!
- A tap left running can waste up to 17 litres of water per minute!
- A leaking toilet can waste up to 16,000 litres of water a year!
- Water efficient taps with an aerator or flow restrictor use 50% less water than standard taps!
- The bathroom uses around 49% of all water inside the home!
- An eight minute shower using a regular shower head uses around 120 litres of water. A water efficient shower head uses less than 72 litres!
Drip irrigation has proven the most efficient watering method available. Hardly any water is wasted through wind, evaporation, run-off or overspray.
- Did you know that it can take 15 minutes to deliver just one litre of water to the soil with drip irrigation, compared to five seconds when delivering one litre by hand.
- By slowly dripping water into the soil at the base of plants, water is released at a rate that’s easy to absorb, only where it’s needed? After all, why water the weeds.
- Drip irrigation also reduces the risk of erosion, soil compaction and insect and fungal problems in plants. It’s great for all garden areas!
- The benefit of drip irrigation is the use of flexible piping that is easily laid and is suitable for most environments, including ornamental gardens.
Domestic rainwater collection is a viable solution to our ongoing need for water.
Rainwater is obviously ideal for watering the garden, washing the car and cleaning hard surfaces. With very little treatment, it is also suitable for flushing toilets and washing clothes. There is a great opportunity for you to conserve mains supplied drinking water, with a commensurate saving on water charges, by installing a rainwater collection system.
