Tips for Saving Water
Posted on June 22 2013, Showers and Taps
- We can all save water if we put our mind to it. If you remember to do at least one of these it can become a good habit and will reduce your use of water.
- When washing your hands or shaving don’t leave the tap running, run a small amount of water into a mug and use this to dip your toothbrush into – this soon becomes a habit (a good one!)
- Dripping taps, cisterns etc are not only irritating they waste thousands of gallons every year, so replace the seals or call your local plumber
- A full bath needs can use up to 80 litres of water, just run a slightly lower bath – every little helps!
- A quick shower uses less water than a bath and refreshes you speedily
- Flushing the toilet uses lots of drinking water, so does it need to flushed all the time?
- How often do you need to wash your car? Use recycled water from rainwater butts
- Think green – recycle rain water through water butts, available via your local council or garden centre, or if you can, recycle your bath water using a long hose
- In summer when it is hot water only in the evening when it has cooled down, preferably using recycled rain water
