Homes use around 70 per cent of the drinkable water in our region.
At Hunter Water we are committed to helping you save this precious resource through a range of hints and tips.
Fifteen to twenty per cent of all water consumed in the home is used in the laundry, making this room a high consumer of not only water, but also energy and detergents.
Nearly half of all water consumed in the home is used in the bathroom. Twenty per cent of that water is flushed down the toilet.
Washing your car and cleaning your driveway are activities that traditionally use a lot of water. Here are some ways to reduce water consumption while still having a clean driveway and car.
You can be water efficient and still enjoy these great leisure activities if you follow a few simple water conservation guidelines.
A slowly dripping tap may seem insignificant, but it alone can waste 20,000 litres in a year.
Using rainwater and greywater instead of our precious drinking water for outdoor purposes could save each household more than 50,000 litres of drinking water every year.
Most of us know the importance of saving energy, and many know the importance of saving water. But few of us connect that by saving one, we also save the other.
