Re-use your indoor water outdoors

Reuse water from your house on your garden | Water saving

Used water from baths, washing up bowls and cooking pans can all be put on the garden. In some cases the used water may even be better for your garden than household tap water. Whenever you finish using a volume of water around the house, consider whether it can be reused in your garden before letting it drain away down the plughole.

When you’ve finished doing the washing-up, look to tip the remaining water onto your garden (providing you’ve only used natural washing-up liquids/soaps). Likewise, when you’ve finished having a bath with natural (or no) soaps, consider bucketing your cooled water into the garden.

If you’re cooking with a pan of boiling water, look to also use that for watering your indoor or outdoor plants once it’s cooled. Water used for boiling eggs or vegetables will contain additional nutrients that will be beneficial to your plants.

All of these measures reduce the need to waste additional tap water on keeping your garden watered in hotter weather.

The first Hampshire Water Festival took place in August 2015 in Winchester and was a great success with 10,000 visitors.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire. Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers. It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
