Hot Tips & Cool Ideas for Water
The delight of fountains
The sound of moving water is calming and soothing to the soul. Simple, beautiful fountains that recycle water can be a delightful addition to your house or garden. Outdoor fountains should be placed in a shaded area to minimize evaporation and conserve water. Nurseries and landscaping centers have a variety of fountains to suit your needs.
Modify plumbing to use gray water
Install simple plumbing to allow the "gray water" from your bathtub/shower and washing machine to be used for landscaping purposes. Using your water twice helps conserve this precious resource, saves you money, and keeps your yard and garden green. Water Harvesting, Recycling and Conservation Consultants and Suppliers and quality Plumbers can help design and install a gray water system for you.

Harvest rainwater with simple systems
You can easily "harvest" rainwater from your hard surfaces (roofs, driveways and patios) to use for landscaping and gardening at a later time. Systems can be as simple as rain barrels below your gutters and canales to full-fledged "catchment" systems with buried cisterns and pumps.
