Water Restrictions in Cape Town

Water Restrictions in Cape Town

Dear Traveller

Water Restriction Level 6 have been imposed by the City of Cape Town as of 1st January 2018.

All water users are required to use no more than 87 litres of municipal drinking water per person per day in total irrespective of whether you are at home, work or elsewhere.

Several new measures have been implemented to maximize water savings. One of the measures encourages to flush toilets manually with buckets using grey water, rain water or other non-drinking water.

We as a Cape Town business take these measures very seriously and try to contribute as much as we can to make our residual reserves of potable water last as long as possible.

We provide buckets in our bathrooms and ask  our guests to make use of the empty bucket for collecting water in the shower while waiting until the water becomes warm. Grey water for flushing the toilet will be provided on request.

Taking a shower will be restricted to 2 minutes and once a day only. Bathing in the bath tub is not allowed. All plugs have been removed from the bath tubs.

The use of the pool will be restricted to the time before 9.00 am and after 5.00 pm. A pool cover will be fitted during the day in order to reduce evaporation.
