Enjoy using water in the garden responsibly
Helpful hints to enjoy this summer in the garden
Refill your paddling pool or hot tub less often
Use a Scum Ball in your pool or spa to help prevent the formation of scum lines and reduce foaming. Simply place the Scum Ball into a clean pool or hot tub to absorb more than 40 times its weight in body oils and lotions.
Don't wash your car - or use a bucket
Be proud to have a dirty car this summer! Just washing your windscreen cuts your water usage dramatically. If you do have to wash your car, use a bucket rather than a hose. This can save approximately 220 litres of water.
Reuse your paddling pool water
Don’t forget to keep the water in your paddling pool for another day or reuse it to water your flowerbeds.
Look after your water
It’s worth covering up your paddling pool when it’s not in use to prevent water evaporation.
Wash the dog outside instead of a bath
If you own a dog, consider washing them outside instead of the bath during warmer weather. Excess water can be soaked up through the grass or be used to water the plants.
