To mark UN World Water Day (March 22) here in the Cowichan valley, our goal is to find 100 people who will test their hoses for leaks and fix them this week, resulting in 1 million litres of water saved over the course of the year.
By simply replacing your hose washers and tightening your hose connections you can save up to 240 litres a day!
Here’s the math of a leaky hose:
|10||litres per hour|
|24||hours per day|
|120||days per watering season|
|28,800||litres saved by fixing one leaky hose|
|2||hoses per household on average|
|5,760,000||potential litres saved by fixing 200 leaky hoses|
WE CAN DO THIS!
BONUS! Drillwell Enterprises will donate $2 for each of the first 100 people who fix their hoses, with the monies going to an African water non-profit.
