Water saving tip # 16

By James Lombard   (2016-04-29)

Use a bucket for vehicle washing

A standard garden hose could use as much as 30 liters of water per minute. This is much more than is needed to clean a car.

Rather use a bucket filled with soapy water and a sponge to do the washing. A hose can then be used only for rinsing, or ideally a separate bucket of water. A spray nozzle is recommended when rinsing with a hose as this allows for selective control of the water flow which is much more efficient than a standard hose.
