Back Ways to Stop Wasting Water
If you stop wasting water you will save the energy needed to
  • heat the water that comes out of your hot tap;
  • treat and clean the dirty water when it disappears down your plug hole.
Ways you can reduce your water use include:
  • fix dripping taps;
  • take short showers – they use much less water than baths;
  • turn off the tap when it is not being used – like when you are brushing your teeth;
  • don’t over-water plants;
  • collect rainwater in a water butt and use it to water outdoor areas.
