How can Save the Water?

Conserving water is as good for your wallet as it is for the environment. When you use less water in your household, you save on more than your water bill. Your energy bill goes down too because you won’t use as much energy to heat hot water. The community also benefits from your conservation efforts, because you put less pressure on water and sewage treatment facilities.

Bathroom

here are many ways to conserve water in your bathroom because it is probably the room in your house where you waste the most water. Take a short shower. According to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, you save 5 to 7 gallons when you reduce your shower time by a single minute. If you take baths, you can save at least 10 gallons by filling the tub only halfway. Install water-saving shower heads. Fill a bottle with water and put in your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water you flush by at least 150 gallons a month. Don’t let the faucet run, because every extra minute wastes 2 to 3 gallons.

Kitchen

Save water in the kitchen by doing dishes the smart way. Completely fill the dishwasher before you run it. When you wash dishes by hand, use running water as little as possible. Let your dishes soak overnight in soapy water before you wash them. This reduces the amount of water wasted when you scrub caked-on food under a running faucet. If you have a double-basin sink, fill one side with rinse water and use it for all your dishes. If you have a single-basin sink, put all your soapy dishes in the dish rack and then rinse them with a spray device. If your single-basin sink has no spray device, consider purchasing a plastic basin for rinsing.

Inside and Out

Schedule a day to check all of the pipes and faucets in your house for leaks and repair them as soon as possible. In the laundry room, do a wash only when you have enough dirty clothes to fill the washer, and always use water saving settings. If you have stained clothing items, soak and retreat them so you do not have to wash them twice. When you landscape your yard, choose plants that thrive in the local climate in so you do not have to water your yard frequently. If you do water outdoor plants, do so before 9:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m. because less of the water evaporates during cooler hours.
