What is so frustrating is that so much water goes to waste at source, because the water companies do not wish to pay to improve the existing structure i.e. leaking pipes! Yet they continue to make a year-on-year profits.
I try to use 'grey' household water to water my pots on the patio. I did use the hosepipe once or twice last year, under cover of darkness. But I tend to use the watering can more because you get really soak the roots of plants more effectively this way. And again, I always do it at dusk.
