Tips for Conserving Water (part1)

The Water Delivery Company wants to share some useful tips on how people can conserve water.

  1. Turn off your running water while you brush your teeth, wash your hands, or when you are washing dishes. You can fill a cup of water to rinse your teeth instead of taking sips from the running faucet or fill the sink with water and use it to soak all the dishes.
  2. If you are using a washing machine, turn it on only when it is really full. If you use the machine just for a couple of plates – you are wasting a lot of water and energy, not to mention more chemicals for the washing machine detergents.
  3. Try to take showers that are shorter. We all enjoy a long shower, but this means a lot more wasted water. Keep in mind some people around the world do not even have water to drink.
  4. Put a water colouring in the tank of your toilet. If you see that coloured water is running down – this means you have a leakage and you have to take measures to stop wasting that water.
  5. Make sure to tightly turn off all facets. You may think that it is just a few drops of water, but in reality it is a lot more, if you leave them dripping for hours.
  6. Buy a water efficient toilet.

The Water Delivery Company will be back next week with more useful tips.
