Sodeeqah Jaffer, a property administrator with RPA, has a novel way of saving water with the co-operation of her three-year-old water warrior son, Rayyaan.

It takes about a minute for warm water to come through in their shower and rather than just let this run into the bucket, she has convinced Rayyaan that this is the ideal time to get clean.

“I tell him to just pretend he is in the sprinkler. The water is not warm in the sprinkler and you know what, he is happy and enjoys it.

“Once the warm water comes in, I jump in followed by my husband. We are all done within four minutes and we have family fun saving water!

“I am not sure what we will do in winter. He will probably just have to go dirty. But he will probably enjoy that too!!!!’’ she laughs.

Water collected in the shower in their household is used to flush the loos.
