Why DIY Paving Moulds?
Cape Town had been experiencing the worst drought in over 30 years. The Dams were running dry and rain fall has been very low for the past three years. It is said, the Poles are melting due to the higher temperatures and this is certainly true for the South Pole. With more cold water entering the ocean it is causing a drop in the water temperature. This is impacting negatively on evaporation and we in Southern Africa are seeing less and less rain fall. Definitely far less than we used to.
Cape Town Residents and Businesses have had to re look at the way they use water. Our water has had the Blue Drop Certificate for the past few years which meant we could use our tap water as drinking water. Now we are looking at no drinking water from our taps. If the rains are not great going into the future and our dams start to run empty, what are we going to do? No drinking water, no water to keep our gardens looking lush and green. How are we going to keep our ourselves and our clothes clean, clean the floors and windows. Use the Toilet? These are questions every Capetonian has been asking themselves.
As from 01 February 2018 Cape Town was on a level 6B Water Restriction.
We are limited to 50 litres per person per day. Although this has significantly improved in 2019 we could find our selves back to the 2018 situation if we continue to waste our water supply. The growth of the City does not help the situation either.
Over the past year there have been many innovative ideas and new water saving devices often at a high cost. The Cape Town Municipality has increased the price of water and Sanitation and are looking for more ways to charge us more. Water tanks purchases went through the ceiling and at one point were on order as stocks ran out. Day zero has been moved and we are still under water restrictions and policing by the the Council.
HOW ARE WE SAVING WATER??????
No long showers. Special shower heads and any water used is caught or redirected for reused for the toilets. Flush only if absolutely necessary. No baths. Wash your floors with the shower water. Use paper plates and wash up every second day if there is not a full sink of dishes. Only non potable water to be used for the garden and pools. Often brought in at a high cost. Hand sanitizes. Wear your clothes more than once to save water. Dry clean your car.
At present we still have drinking water from our taps. but without very good rains over the next few years this will stop and we will have to collect our rations at central points in Cape Town.
Our gardens have suffered the most with dry brown lawns and dead plants. Neighbor’s watching you in case you use potable water and if you have a green lawn they want to know why? Unless it is artificial. Any well points producing water and the water is in use, the Council is watching you.
