Cleaning hard surfaces

Cleaning your driveways and footpaths are activities that traditionally use a lot of water. To help you save water, here are some tips to keep your home and surrounds looking clean:
  • Use a broom, brush, blower or rake to sweep and clean outdoor paths and paving instead of hosing them down with water
  • Spot clean any marks using a hose with a trigger nozzle or a high pressure cleaner
  • Fill a bucket, and use a sponge to remove extra stubborn marks
  • Wash your vehicle on the grass (learn more about saving water while washing your vehicle here)

Level 1 Water Restrictions

Level 1 water restrictions now apply. Using a hose for the general cleaning of hard surfaces such as paths, driveways and paved areas is not allowed, and hoses and taps cannot be left running unattended.
