Cape Town’s infamous Day Zero, when the reservoir level reaches 13.5% and the city turns off all taps, has now been pushed back to June 4th 2018. This is due to the city receiving much needed rain in the past few weeks and a generous water donation from farm owned dams in the greater Western Cape area.
Despite the momentary respite, citizens are urged to continue saving water and keep the inevitability of day zero at bay. Take a look at this list of 5 water saving products to install in your bathroom.
