Other than his classic Torana, Bob’s pride and joy is his lawn. On any given weekend, you’ll probably find Bob out the front making sure every blade of his buffalo grass is in perfect shape. But he’s learning that you don’t need to keep the sprinkler running all day to have the best lawn on the block. Learn more about when to hand-water or use an automatic irrigation system.
Bob enjoys a splash, but he knows you need to keep the water in the pool, not over the side. No bombing, Bob! By following a few simple tips, you can keep cool in the pool and not need to continually top up from the tap.
By reducing evaporation with a pool cover, sheltering your pool from sun and wind, and properly maintaining your pool, you can keep cool, have fun and still save water. Discourage people from constantly jumping in and out to keep the water in the pool, not over the side.
To save water, only backwash your filter when necessary. If you keep your pool and filters clean you won't need to backwash as often.
