SAVE WATER

  

The average person is about 150 litres each day. Here's how to reduce that...

  1. Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
  2. Place a cistern displacement device in your toilet cistern to reduce the volume of water used in each flush. You can get one of these from your water provider.
  3. Take a shorter shower. Showers can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute. Consider getting an aerated shower head, which combines water and air, or inserting a regulator in your shower, which puts an upper limit on flow rates.
  4. Always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher – this cuts out unnecessary washes in between.
  5. Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year..
  6. Water your garden with a watering can rather than a hosepipe. A hosepipe can use as much as 1,000 litres of water an hour.
  7. Install a water meter. When you're paying your utility provider for exactly how much water you use, laid out in an itemised bill, there's an incentive to waste less of the stuff.
  8. Invest in water-efficient goods when you need to replace household products. You can now get water-efficient shower heads, taps, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers and many other water-saving products.
  9. Use Bucket for Washing Cars & Bikes can save a lot of water wastage as compare to using Pipes.
