Boaters Best Practice Water

Water Efficiency

  • Do not leave the hose running unnecessarily when filling up your water tanks or washing down your boat
  • Encourage your club, marina or harbour office to install water saving devices, e.g. Trigger Nozzles, Aerated Shower Heads and Cistern Displacement Devices  
  • Report any leaks to your club, marina or harbour office
  • Fix dripping taps 
  • Install tap aerators wherever possible (reducing amount of water used by up to 80%) and watersaver shower heads which typically halve flow rates while still providing a powerful shower
  • Use plugs in basins and fill the basin rather than use running water
  • Consider buying products which score well on the water efficiency product labelling scheme
