Barry’s tips are simple and easy to use in daily life. We especially love Barry’s tips for saving water outdoors, especially since so much water usage happens in our own backyards. For example, conserving water by sweeping patios instead of hosing down pavement doesn’t add any time to normal chores. Plus, native plants and drought resistant plants are all the rage now, and using this foliage in your landscaping will save time and money in addition to lots of water. Barry’s final outdoor tip for collecting the rainwater that falls off your roof is also a brilliant way to water your whole backyard, or can be reused inside in toilets and washing machines.
Speaking of the indoors, Barry gives insightful tips for conserving water in the bathroom. His most important tip may be to make sure leaky faucets are fixed quickly. If left unchecked, leaky faucets can waste 20,000 liters, or over 5,000 gallons, in just one year. Luckily, Barry gives step-by-step instructions for how to fix a leaky faucet in a matter of minutes, so you won’t even need to spend money on a plumber!
