    If you've got a meter then start reading it at least weekly to see how much water you are using. Then you can see whether your water saving measures are working. When you monitor it then you can do something about your consumption.

    Learn to take shorter showers - six of you at 5 minutes each is at least 30 minutes of showering a day. With a high flow shower head that could be a lot of water.

    So get a flow restrictor fitted on all the taps and the shower to help reduce consumption..

    Dont let water run down the sink when washing or rinsing stuff, including your hands, and especially when cleaning your teeth.

    Make sure that the washing machine & dishwasher are fully loaded, they use the same amount of water and energy as when they are only half full.
