Simple Water Saving Tips For Summer

Fresh water is a scarce resource and we all have a part to play in conserving as much valuable water as possible

water saving tipsHere are some tips on how to save water:

    • Install a low-flow shower head and tap aerators on all taps.
    • Flush toilets only when necessary.
    • Install a multi-flush or dual-flush mechanism in the toilet. A multi-flush device allows the user to choose exactly how much water goes to waste when pressing the handle. A dual-flush device has a short flush button for liquids and a longer flush button for solids.
    • Plant water-wise indigenous plants.
    • Water gardens only in early morning or the evening and only when necessary.
    • Install garden drip irrigation on flower beds and sprayers on lawns.
    • Collect rainwater in rain water tanks for re-using on the garden or washing the car.
    • Use a broom instead of a hosepipe when cleaning driveways or patios.
    • Insulate hot water pipes so that not too much water is wasted when waiting for water to get hot.
    • Cover your swimming pool to reduce water evaporation.

The great thing about saving water is that it saves money as well as the environment – every good citizen should embrace water conservation, there is not any good reason not to!  Rainwater can also be used for potable purposes but it should be appropriately filtered first.  All water meant for drinking should always be stored in water tanks that are certified for this purpose.  JoJo Tanks water tanks have an FDA-approved food-grade lining to ensure the stored water is kept fresh and free from contamination.  Click on the links below to see the various water tanks and other products available from JoJo Tanks South Africa.
