Water Conservation

Helpful water saving tips:                    

  • Only water in the coolest part of the day
  • Do not water lawns in direct sunlight ( it burns the grass and loses 99% through evaporation)
  • Do not cut your lawns too short
  • Do not overwater lawns (One good soaking or two light waterings a week will keep your lawn in good condition)
  • Remember sprinklers can use up to 1000 litres per hour
  • Mulch gardens to prevent drying out
  • Install an effective dripper system    
  • Divert your evaporative air conditioner water onto the lawn
  • Check your water system for leaks
  • Re-washer dripping taps
  • Use tap timers so sprinklers are not left on by mistake
  • Install a dual flush cistern
