    Hosepipe ban from the 5th April in most of the South and East of England.

    http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16187070

    Looks like some of us will be doing most of our car washing with buckets this year and retiring the pressure washers.

    I looked up what you can and can't use a pressure washer for during a hosepipe ban, anyone else find this statement crazy...

    "You CAN use a hose with a pressure washer during a hosepipe ban to clean paths, patios and much else - but not cars."

    So, cars are non-essential, but paths and patios are???

    But we can use a hose to put out a fire, oh that's a relief, the fire brigade can cancel that huge order of buckets...

    i think its a joke with the ban's, Dry winters, not where im living! Though im sure there are many more ways of reducing water usage all year round and not just "hosepipe ban"
