The clouds are busy today, building and shifting with the tempting promise of rain. Billowing white in places with a smudging of grey undertones. The potential is there, hope is there. It’s timely perhaps as today is March 22, 2015 – World Water Day.
Water is an amazing substance – it is the only liquid that expands as it freezes and can exist in the three states of matter at the same time – liquid, solid and vapour. Take some time to appreciate water today. It it vital for life – give it the respect it deserves.
http://eartheasy.com/live_water_saving.htm has some good water saving ideas such as this one – Use your water meter to check for hidden water leaks
Read the water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak.
I like to keep a bucket under a gutter outlet to catch rainwater to water my potplants – the plants grow much better as the rain is alive with vitality and free from the chemicals of our water treatment systems.
