                  Here are some simple tips to help conserve water around the house:

                  •	 If	you	feel	like	a	long	soak,	have	a	bath	instead	of	a	shower.

                  •	 Look	for	water	efficient	ratings	when	you	buy	water-using	appliances	
                     and	products.

                  •	 Use	the	plug	and	fill	the	sink	or	basin	instead	of	leaving	water	running.

                  •	 Wait	for	a	full	load	before	doing	the	laundry	or	dishes.

                  •	 Install	a	dual	flush	toilet	–	a	half	flush	will	do	most	of	the	time.

                  •	 Fix	dripping	taps	straight	away.

                  By	using	water	wisely	you	can	save	money	and	reduce	your	impact	on	the	
                  environment.	Try	saving	10	buckets	of	water	a	day,	it's	easy.	Click	here to
