Being water smart
This water issue began to start on March 11th 2017
The problem that caused the whole water issue is that there was a storm that came and the silt polluted the water in Auckland. The water care people are urged to reduce their household’s by 20 litres a day.
Tips on how to save up more water:
- Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
- Take a shorter shower, a short shower would take you 3 to 5 minutes- Shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute.
- Only use your washing machine when it is completely full and you can’t squish anything else in.
- Put on fuller loads using your washing machine, which will mean less of having to do lot’s of little loads.
