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! 

If you’re passionate about saving water, there is much more you can do to conserve this valuable resource. For example, you could take shorter showers and make sure to turn off the water while you brush your teeth. You could also consider installing water conserving appliances in your home, and we’ve compiled some of our favorites below!
