Saving water in the house

A family of four can use anything between 300 and 800 litres of water in the home per day. This is a very large amount considering that many people in the world use as little as 25 litres of water per person per day, or six kilolitres of water per household per month. This means that it is entirely possible to conduct your daily tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, bathing, drinking and flushing toilets with only 2.5 buckets of water a day. Water Wise, Rand Water’s environmental brand, challenges every South African to use as little water a day as possible.
