Stay water wise

Water is a precious resource, and in Western Australia, it is especially important to be mindful of water usage. With a semi-arid climate, water can be scarce, and it’s important to take steps to conserve and use it wisely. Here are some tips on how to be water wise in WA:

  1. Fix leaks: A leaky faucet or toilet can waste hundreds of litres of water per day. Make sure to fix any leaks as soon as you discover them. Leak detection is crucial to both saving water and money down the line.
  2. Install low-flow showerheads: Low-flow showerheads use less water but still provide a strong flow, saving you both water and money on your water bill.
  3. Use a water-saving toilet: Toilets use a large amount of water, but newer models can use as little as 4.5 litres per flush.
  4. Use water-efficient appliances: When it comes to appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, look for those with the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) rating.
  5. Collect rainwater: In WA, it is legal to collect rainwater from your roof for non-potable use. This can be used to water your garden, wash your car or flush your toilet.
    Be mindful of your water usage: Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth or shaving. Take shorter showers and do not leave the water running when washing dishes or doing laundry.
  6. Educate yourself: Learn about the water cycle and the different water sources in WA. Understand the importance of conserving water and the impact of our actions on the environment.

By following these tips, you can help conserve water in Western Australia and make a positive impact on the environment. Remember that every drop counts, and by working together, we can ensure a sustainable water supply for generations to come.
