Ways to Reduce Water

Consumption in the bathroom

If you want to reduce water consumption in your house you have to reduce the number of baths you take, period. Save those long and refreshing baths for special occasions.

Reduce baths, take showers

Leaks waste a lot of water, and sometimes you may not even know that you have a leakage. Always check and replace any faulty gaskets, faucets, or washers. Check if your toilet is leaking.

Take care of leakages

Get faucets, showerheads, and toilets that help conserve water. We are talking about low-flow toilets, auto-detect faucets that shut off automatically, and showerheads with a shut-off valve to turn on or shut off mid-shower.

Install water-saving appliances

Throw these towels into a waste basket and dispose of them appropriately later. These facial towels can clog your toilet drainage system because they take a long time to disintegrate.

Do not flush facial tissues or dental floss

Water pressure controls the speed at which your water flows from the faucet or showerhead. If the pressure is too high, you may waste several gallons of water as you adjust to the right one.

Adjust the water pressure

Always turn off faucets when they are not in use. For instance, do not leave the water running when brushing your teeth or cleaning your face.

Turn off faucets when not in use

Whenever we step into the shower, we waste several precious seconds as the water warms up. We let the water drain away without a second thought. The wasted water may not seem much but the wastage becomes considerable over time.

Catch and recycle shower water
