The common citizen gardeners are revolting against a requirement that they cannot water their gardens, except using buckets. The talk back radio waves are full of angry upstanding citizens ranting against the State Labor Governments attack on gardeners rights and the injustice of old ladies getting up early to walk around with buckets to preserve their gardening treasures. With temperatures already in the high twenties and no rain, it is a real issue for many people.
On the weekend the Murdoch Rag had a serious double page spread on the issues of watering gardens, drippers and the like and the need for water economy, which nobody doubts. The major advertiser on the page supporting this was a swimming pool company promising swimming pools by Christmas. You can't fill them, but you can get them installed. Perhaps you can fill it with buckets. For a rainwater tank on the other hand, that would be about 9 months in some cases.
