    NSW has stage 2 "water restrictions" atm. :rolleyes:

    Some fun facts.
    You can wash your car using a bucket and sponge or at a commercial car wash, but you can't wash your car at home using a hose that's connected to a tap.

    So you're free to fill up a bucket as many times as you like and dump it on your car which will end up using a lot more water then a hose and nozzle. o_O Once again government today have proven their self useless.

    But the idiotic logic of government doesn't end there. You can't use a hose to rinse down a car for 5 minutes once a month, but free to take an hour long shower every day with the water full blast :confused: Mmm i wonder why dam levels keep dropping...

    The only thing that can reduce water usage is to increase the cost by a lot. That's normally how markets functions when there is a shortage. But i guess our government prefer the socialist approach where government controls the "market"

    I 100% agree. I suspect many in Govt have ever, if rarely washed a car thus have NFI about the wastage that occurs when using a bucket as opposed to hose with gun nozzle etc.

    Given we can only use a watering can to water the plants now, I saw this in the UK....nothing in the NSW Stage 2 rules dictates how I fill my watering can.

    While we are at it, same theory re filling a bucket to wash the car. Saves many a walk to the tap.

    This would make a nice troll video for government. :D Seems to be a nice loophole.

    Where I live (NSW) we were on Level 2 water restrictions when the dam dropped to 80% capacity.... WTF?
    80% means we are only 20% down over 12 months of drought? By my calculations that gives us another 4 years supply?
    Do you fill your car up when the tank only shows 80% full?

    Anyway, copped a 400mm rain deluge over the weekend that caused flash flooding and damage to properties, and topped up the dam.
    And now council says they will wait 10 weeks before thinking about lifting water restrictions.

    Conclusion - this is what happens when you have a fktard Green's-led council and the weather doesn't suit their climate-change agenda.

    Business as normal as far as water use is concerned at my place. :p

    wow they jumped the gun where you are. Sydney didn't start Level 2 restrictions until dam levels got down to about 40%.

    Maybe they plan to send the water from your dam down to us in Sydney :D

    Contact the National Party. They'll sell you all the water you want.

    I reckon the Green's mayor received orders from the top to fall in line with the narrative. ;)
