7 Water Saving Tips for the current drought conditions in Cape Town
Cape has experienced the worst drought since 1904. The City of Cape Town will be implementing Level 4 water restrictions from the 1st of June. Herewith some handy tips on saving water in our homes and business. We can all help reduce waste by making small behavioural changes and by choosing more water efficient products.
- 6 litres of water per minute. This is what you can save if you turn off the tap while you brush your teeth.
- An average washing machine uses about 50 litres of water. So wait until you have a full load of laundry before you use it.
- A typical dishwasher uses about 13 litres of water per cycle. Steer clear from switching it on – for just a few items.
- Just a single person uses around 13.6 litres of water every time they flush the toilet. Purchase an energy efficient cistern displacement device – and replace your old one.
- A bath takes anywhere between 65 and 150 litres of water. Replace some of your bath time with quick showers and when you do bath, recycle the bath water by using it to water the garden.
- Fix those leaks immediately! A dripping tap can waste up to 15 litres of water per day.
- Recycle your water by putting a water butt on your drainpipe. This way you can reuse water collected to water your garden or clean your car.
