Ways to Reduce Water Consumption
With World Conservation Day around the corner, here are some tips to help you build and style more green bathrooms while preserving water.
Give a deep soak to your lawn
Change the way you water your garden. Create an in-house water purifying system that sends bathroom wastewater through a filtration system. This water is then sent out to the lawn for watering. Water it long enough for the water to seep down to the roots where it is needed. A light sprinkling that sits on the surface will simply evaporate and be wasted.
Use water-saving faucets
Introducing water-efficient products has become a need of the hour. With the value of water rising and the chances of its scarcity increasing, brands are actively coming up with solutions to reduce water wastage.
Utilize your washing machine’s full potential
With washing machines taking so little time to fulfil our goal of having clean clothes, it is often used too frequently, thus impacting the amount of water we use. Collect enough clothes in your laundry bag to fill the machine before starting it. Not only will this save a lot of water but also your efforts in washing clothes. You can go ahead and replace your chemical detergents with organic ones. The organic replacement will reduce your micro-plastic output and leave your clothes soft and fragrant!
Always check for leaks
Test your toilets for leaks at least once a year — toilet leaks can be silent killers! An excellent way to check is by putting food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the bowl without flushing, then there’s a leak that needs fixing.
Shower with a conscience
A hot water shower is the most relaxing end to a hard day. And the thought of giving that up leaves a sour taste. Use shower heads that ensure volume of water is not wasted and is released in a controlled manner.
