how to save water

Water Conserving Habits and Practices

  • Fix leaking taps and running cistern or header tank overflows (balls or lift valves)
  • Shower rather than bath.
  • If dual flush cistern is fitted, use it.
  • Use basin plugs taps to limit water used for washing rather than under running tap.
  • Use bucket and brush rather than hose for washing vehicles
  • Irrigate garden early morning or evening to minimize evaporation losses
  • Lower water level in swimming pool slightly to reduce amount of water lost in splashing
  • Vegetables and fruit should be washed in a bowl rather than under a running tap and the left over water can be used for watering house plants
  • Use the minimum amount of water required when you boil water in sauce-pans and kettles; that way, you’ll save energy as well as water
  • Try keeping a bottle or jug of water in the fridge instead of running taps until the water runs cold
  • Half-load programs on dishwashers and washing machine use more than half the water and energy of full load. Therefore, wait until you have a full load before you switching the machine on
  • Prefer water-saving models when you purchase a new washing or dish-washing machine.
  • Try not to leave the tap running while you brush your teeth, shave or wash your hands, as this can waste up to 5 litres of water per minute.
  • A 5-minute shower uses about a third of the water of a bath. Limit your showering time as the more you stay in the bathroom the more you waste
  • Old toilet cisterns can use as much 9 litres of clean water every flush. You can reduce the volume by adjusting the mechanism inside or replace the cistern with a dual type
  • Toilets reservoirs are responsible up to one-third of total domestic use. Therefore, do not flush the reservoir unless required
  • It is difficult to detect whether or not your toilet reservoir is dripping. Make a dye test
  • Cotton wool and tissues should be put in waste bin rather than flushed down the toilet
  • Dripping taps can waste up to 10 litres of water a day. Replace worn out tap washers for a quick and cheap way of saving water. Check them frequently if they are dripping
  • Burst water pipes can cause serious damage as well as waste water. Ensure your water pipes and external taps are lagged in time for the cold water
  • You can use thermal armatures to save the water wasted during the warming-up period in normal mix-type armatures.
  • Reclamation and Reuse.
  • Consumers should as much as possible re-use water
  • Consumers should harvest rain water to supplement conventional sources
