The above water saving tips were compiled by the South Australia government but most, if not all, can be applied to homes anywhere in the world, including South Africa. We would also recommend the installation of rain water tanks and rainwater harvesting systems. Rainwater tanks can store enough water to become totally independent of municipal water supplies (depending on rainfall, roof area and available space for water tanks). Always choose water tanks carefully; we recommend JoJo Tanks (South Africa) as they carry a 5-year guarantee and are of high quality at affordable prices.
