WATER SAVING

When guests come home and ask for water. Place a tray with a jug of water and some empty glasses. Allow them to pour the water themselves. This will help reduce the wastage of water as he or she would pour out only how much they require.


TAPS & PIPELINE
Stop leaking taps. Check all your pipelines, taps & faucets are leak free.
While you wash your face , don’t allow water to run. Instead collect water in I mug and use it.
Remember to turn off the water tap while brushing your teeth and shaving.


FLUSH
Avoid flushing the toilet often. Better you put one or two plastic bottles filled with water inside the flush tank in order to reduce its capacity and to reduce water waste . You can put a few stones inside the bottle so that it does not float. Take care that it does not block water to the flush pipe.
There are flush tanks available which are adjustable for short and long term flushing.


BATH
Instead of taking shower or taking bath in a bath tub, prefer collection of water in a bucket and using a mug . If you don’t want, make your shower bath shorter.


REUSE
Don’t call water meant for drains as waste water. Call it used water, which means it can be used again.
Don’t allow your wash place (dishes) waste water to go to the drain and sewer. Don’t forget that there is another use for it watering your garden.
