WATER IS LIFE: Respect it, Conserve it, Enjoy it

An unusually high water bill may indicate a leak somewhere in your home. Water leaks can be very costly and a waste of South Africa's most precious natural resource. Make every drop count. Report water leaks at your nearest municipal offices.

  • Use a bucket rather than a hose to wash your car
  • Kettles should be filled with just enough water for your needs and not to the brim
  • Turn off taps while washing your face, brushing your teeth or shaving
  • Taking a five-minute shower a day, instead of a bath will save up to 400 litres a week
  • Fix leaking toilets. It can waste up to 100 000 litres of water in one year.
For water and sanitation related queries, leaks and burst pipes and illegal water connections, contact your ward councillor or call 08000 WATER (92837) or (039) 688 5830/36 or SMS 44751.
