Home Living : December 9th 2008
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, December 9, 2008 1 Water wise Keep an eye on your tank's water level with a quick and easy to install Rain Harvesting Tank Gauge, suitable for all vented tanks up to 2.5m high. Using a reliable floating system, the gauge measures the level of water, which is displayed on an indicator attached to the top of the tank. RRP$29.95. Available at Bunnings Warehouse. Washing machines rated 4.5 stars or higher for water efficiency use around 14 per cent less water than 4-star water-efficient models and significantly less than older, top-loader models. Buy a 4.5 stars or higher washing machine for water efficiency and receive $150 cash back from Sydney Water. A 4.5-star water-efficient washing machine saves more than 24,000 litres of water a year. Details: Sydney Water at www.sydneywater.com.au or call 9350 5151. HOMELIVING The point of paint Is there a way to add value to your home even if you don't have the skills or budget to go through a full renovation? According to real estate agent Tim Heavyside, you can add real value without picking up a hammer simply by repainting your home. ''How you present your home is vital to ensure you get a positive response from potential buyers,'' Mr Heavyside says. ''In these tough economic times, paint is the most cost-effective way to make a dramatic improvement without the expense of employing an architect, builder, electrician or plumber. ''And while a professional painter is likely to give the best results, you can also do the job yourself and save on labour.'' But even a coat of paint won't attract buyers if the colour scheme doesn't suit. You'll also need to consider the home's style when making your choices. The Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute recommends you look for colour cards from paint manufacturers. Acrylic paints use higher-quality pigments that not only provide more intense colours, but are better at hiding the old surface, and the 100 per cent acrylic formula provides durability. For ideas on colour, look around your neighbourhood, check design mags and talk with the people at your local paint store.
