CEA’s Top Tips: Be water wise for summer

Be water wise for summer, and check your shower flow rate! Using a stopwatch, time how long it takes to fill up a 10 litre bucket. If it fills in less than a minute when set at your regular shower temperature, you could consider installing a more efficient shower head or a flow restrictor.

Make the most of the warmer weather and dry your washing outside whenever possible. Did you know, one load of washing can release up to 5 litres of moisture into the air?
