You would certainly have heard about how important it is for us to reduce domestic water usage as much as we possibly can. Water is quickly becoming a scarce commodity and conserving as much of it as we possibly can is becoming more and more essential every day.
- Consider installing a low flow shower head and faucet aerator. This is one of the most effective ways of saving water at home. It isn’t that expensive and is very easy to install too. They can deliver a very powerful mist which is going to be more than enough to clean your body while also reducing the consumption of water by 50%.
- Consider putting some stones or a brick inside your toilet tank. This will help you save a lot of water since every time you flush you will be using lesser water. If you are thinking about getting a new toilet altogether, consider getting a low flush one.
- The watering systems that you use for your lawn, flowerbeds and shrubs need to be placed strategically so that none of the water they expel is wasted. Also, you could consider installing drip irrigation systems. This is a simple system which can help you save a lot of water while ensuring your garden remains properly watered.
And lastly, if you have a swimming pool, check it regularly to confirm that it isn’t leaking water. The best way of doing this is by filling up a bucket of water as high as the pool level and leaving it beside the pool. If it’s only evaporation that is lowering the level of water, both the pool and the bucket should lose water at the same rate. If the pool drains faster, you have a leak that needs to be found and fixed right away.
