We all use more water than we realise. Every day, without thinking about it, we waste litres of water and wind up paying for it in our water bills. Here are a few habits you can easily incorporate into your everyday life to save water;
- Use recycled water from cleaning your car or driveway to water your plants and garden.
- Don’t run the water constantly when rinsing dishes. Instead, scrub the dishes with a sponge or scrub brush, then turn the water on and rinse and then shut it off.
- Check for a leaky toilet. Toilet leaks cause a lot of water waste and most people don’t even realise they have a leaky toilet. To check yours, just put a few drops of food coloring in the tank. If the color shows up in the bowl, your flush valve is leaking.
- Don’t wash clothes in small loads. If you have a washing machine, or even if you go to the Laundromat, don’t put laundry in unless you can wash a full load.
