BRAND NEW!! Got the worng size
Water restrictions have been introduced in Christchurch to ensure there are enough supplies to fight fires.
The ban, the lowest of four levels, means water cannot be used outside between 3pm and 9pm, with use of hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems allowed only on alternate days.
People living at odd-numbered addresses should water gardens on odd dates, even-numbered houses on even dates.

The city council has proposed increasing the cost of on-street metered parking by almost a third, from $3.10 an hour to $4.
Under the current pricing structure, people using a credit or debit card pay $3.10 per hour and a card fee of 50 cents, totalling $3.60. The proposed $4 an hour would see the council absorb the card fee, a move that would cost the authority $300,000 a year but be recouped by the increased hourly rate.
In central Auckland motorists pay $5 an hour for the first two hours on weekdays, then $10 an hour; Wellington drivers pay $4.50 an hour.
What do you think of the rise? Fair enough or will it deter you from visiting the CBD? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
