We hear so often now, how we need to be water wise.
Have short showers, wash your cars over grass, only water your garden at dawn and dusk, buy water wise washers, shower heads
etc etc etc etc etc........
In our house we have
1 chook, and one huge fish tank
and according to our Energy Australia bill,
our house hold is eligible for 645 L/day to be classified water wise......
How then are we as a family only using 340 L/day??
I mean, we do try, but there is certainly a lot room for improvement (we don't even have a water tank!). I mean, we have a front loader, we have 'normal' length showers, our kids bath together, but most houses do that.....don't they?
I don't get it.....I've gone back over past bills and whilst we are, as a family doing so much better than we ever were, we were in the past, still under the 645 L/day allowance.......and that's when there was no such thing as water wise!
Where do they get their figures, who comes up with this data???
Anyway......I've set us a new challenge now that the figures are in.......next bill we have to beat it!
Do you know your figures? What do you do to keep your water bill down??
