Water saving tips

You can also save water by following some of our tips below:

Watering your garden

  • establish new lawn using your sprinkler or watering system at any time of day for 14 days after you've laid the turf
  • use water from your rainwater tank, as long as it's not connected to or topped up with drinking water.


  • use a bucket, watering can or a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle to wash vehicles
  • clean your bin using a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle. Where possible, wash your bin in an official bin wash area or on grass
  • hose paths, driveways, concrete or other paved surfaces for health, safety, emergency, construction or surface discoloration reasons. You must be able to give a legitimate reason to one of our authorised staff members if you're asked
  • use a hose to flush your boat engine
  • use a hose with a trigger nozzle or high pressure cleaning device to clean your boat bilges, boat trailer brakes and wheels.
