Summer’s here! Be water smart

The Team from Smart Water

Water-saving tips to help you reduce your water use

Gardening
- Water early morning or late evening to prevent 70% of water evaporating.
- Give your plants a good long soak twice a week rather than a short daily water. You will encourage deeper, healthier roots.
- Use a digital water timer with a rain sensor– it switches on only when needed.  

Pool
- Use a cover to prevent evaporation and keep the water warm
- Keep your pool clean, wipe your feet before you jump in.

Play your part. We value wai in the Waikato.
