We all need to learn water conservation tips. This will not only save money on our water bills, bit it will help preserve our natural resource for our children, grandchildren, and future generations. Listed below are some water conservation tips.
About 3/4 of the water used each month is used in the bathroom. Choosing to take a shower over a bath will reduce water consumption. Installing a low flow shower head will save approximately 1/2 the water being used by older heads. This is the single most effective conservation step.
Installing a new toilet will save more than 1/2 of the water used by old toilets. If you don't change toilets, using a water dam in the old toilets will help save water.
When using the lavatory, only run the water when you are actually rinsing the toothbrush or razor. When washing your hands, turn the water off until you are ready to rinse off the soap.
Wash only full loads of clothes or set the washing machine setting to the correct size of the load. If purchasing a new washing machine, look for a water saving machine.
In the kitchen, fill a sink to rinse dishes instead of leaving the water running. Keep drinking water in the refrigerator instead of running the sink until the water cools off. Wash vegetables in a bowl of water instead of a sink with running water. Use the dishwasher only with full loads.
Repair all leaks as soon as possible.
