Help with a sentence

Is the sentence "vous dépensez l'eau" right? And if it's not, why?
What I want to say "you waste the water"

Thanks :)

Re: Help with a sentence

If you really mean "wasting" then gaspiller is probably a better verb to use.

De l'eau maybe?

Vous gaspillez de l'eau

Vous depensez l'argent comme l'eau.

Not sure about the right, perhaps "quoi!" or even "innit!" Wink [;-)]

A rather strange first posting I thought but being trusting I fell for it.

Re: Help with a sentence

lol, sadly your sentence did not make any sense Eilsel and you've left posters guessing as to what on earth you could mean.

If you still need help, then please write down what you want to say in french, in english and then maybe someone will be able to help you.

And there is nothing wrong with Chancer's guesses, I understand all four lines.Big Smile [:D]

I edited my first message, what I wanted to say was "you waste the water" but I already guess it's very wrong lol
