It is obvious that everybody wants to save water as much as they want to save money. But not everyone is aware that a few simple changes can have a significant impact in saving water. And when you save water, you are also saving money! Well, here’s the good news. You don’t have to do anything drastic -just follow these simple changes.
Find and fix leaks
Running toilets and dripping taps can be fixed often without the need of calling your local plumber. Drips obviously waste water and if you think you have a hidden leak, then it’s time to call your plumber and have the issue looked at professionally.
Minimize running water
Practice turning taps off when you are brushing your teeth. Wash your fruits and vegetables in a basin or with the plug in the sink, rather than under a running water. You can also save a good amount of water by doing these.
Reduce your shower time
This is a pretty simple but really effective water-saving tip! Advice and encourage everyone in your home to take shorter showers or baths, even if it’s only a minute less. Putting a timer in your bathroom is an effective way to help keep everyone on track.
Use Water efficient toilets
New toilets have half-flush water saving option feature which can save thousands of liters of water per year. There are also some devices available that can be installed in your tank to reduce the amount of water used for each flush.
Catch your cold water
Use a container to catch the first lot of cold water that comes through when running a bath or shower, you can then use the water on your garden.
Install a water tank
Collecting and re-using water is an effective way to reduce your water consumption. You can even have the rainwater tank diverted, so when you flush your toilet, the tank water will be used, or you can use your tank to water the garden or wash the car.
Use water efficient appliances
Look for efficient water-using appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines. There are newer dishwashers that use as little as half the water of some older models.
Only run full loads
This applies to washing machines and dishwashers. Run these appliances when they are full, rather than half full, to save energy and water usage.
