Even if your home has an ample water supply, conserving water and reducing waste becomes a shared responsibility to our future generations. Reducing your water consumption also reduces the electricity consumed directly or indirectly.

Water is a vital natural resource. Therefore, it is a good way to save water and reduce water wastage. We can all take and implement some very simple ways to start this fight to conserve water for our future generations. We have listed some of the most basic and effective tips on how to save water in everyday life.

Whether you're washing your clothes, taking a bath, doing the dishes, shaving, brushing your teeth, or working in the garden, there are several simple water conservation methods you can use to save water.

1. Fix your leaks

Known or unknown leaks from faucets, pipes and toilets can result in up to 10,000 liters of water being wasted. You should always check all of your bathroom fixtures for leaks and have the leaks repaired as soon as possible. This not only saves water wastage, but also avoids damage to your walls and fixtures.

2. Install a faucet with an aerator

Adding an aerator to your faucet adds air to the water flow, giving you a smoother stream and using less water overall. Tap aerators are very easy to install, inexpensive and highly effective. Faucets with aerators can save up to 80% water compared to faucets without aerators. Aerators should also be used in fixtures in bathrooms.

3.Always rinse with little water

Simply flushing the toilet accounts for one-fifth of the water consumption of the average household. Without going into details, use the small flush button whenever appropriate. Installing a water displacement device in the cistern of older toilets can also help reduce water use. Many water utilities provide these devices for free and even customize them. Contact your water supplier for details.

4.Use of water meters

If you have a water meter, all of these tips can help you reduce your water and sewage bills.

Even if you don't have a meter, you can lower your gas and electricity bills by using water wisely and reducing the amount of hot water you use. It will also reduce the amount of climate-changing greenhouse gases you emit into the atmosphere.

Using less water also reduces the greenhouse gases emitted from the collection, treatment and delivery of clean water.

5. Check your plumbing

It can sometimes happen that your pipe is infested with germs and dirt and you don't get clean water immediately when you want to cook something. In order to get clean water, many try to let the water run until some clean water arrives. However, this method can consume a lot of water. An examination of the pipes and a subsequent pipe cleaning can solve this problem.
