      [QUOTE]Will also depend on your own personal water useage too. We are trying to be very careful in our house and to bring the usage down. Also looking into having rainwater to flush toilets and seeing how cost effective and worthwhile it is
      We tried this, but there was always some sediment coming through and it was not that successful, but we do use it on the garden and it saves quite a bit.. Our water bill is about $220 per quarter and the use of water varies between $15 and $34, so that is not a major saving to the bill.

      You used to be able to have someone come round and do an energy audit, they advised you what ways you could save power, by using different lamps etc. which they provided. I think it was a govt scheme and I am not sure if it is still going.

      We are 2 adults and 2 young-uns, 5 and 8yrs.

      We pay around $100 per month for gas - used to heat water (instant hot water heater) and the house with a wall furnace. A little less in summer and little more in winter of course.
      Around $100 per month on electricity. Air con is a ducted evaporative air conditioner - only used in the hottest of summer days.
      Around $50 per month for water (usage only).

      We don't have solar and we are renting.


      Arrived in South Australia September 2013.
      Loving it!!!!!!
