Permanent water saving rules apply every day of the year

You can run your water feature (if it recirculates water) all year round. 

Regardless of rainfall, weather or the volume of our water storages, simple common-sense and permanent water saving rules apply every day to conserve water now and for the future. The four key rules are:

  1. Hand-held hoses must be fitted with trigger nozzles and be free of leaks.
  2. Gardens and lawns may be watered with a hand-held hose or watering can at anytime. Sprinklers and watering systems may be used after 6 pm and before 10 am.
  3. Fountains and water features can be used, provided they recirculate water.
  4. Paved areas and hard surfaces should only be washed if required after an accident, for safety reasons, to remove stains, or during building work.

The rules apply only to drinking water (not recycled, tank, bore or grey water).
