Bathrooms: Saving water

Saving water in your bathroom might seem very difficult but it is in fact a very easy thing to do. Take a look at some of these general tips and maybe you’ll save a few liters (or gallons) every day.

In the Shower

  • Put a bucket in the shower while you’re waiting for the water to warm up, and use the water you catch for watering your plants, flushing the toilet or cleaning.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead.
  • Spend less time in the shower.
  • Turn off the water if you shave or brush your teeth in the shower to save time.

In the Bathtub

  • Your best bet would be to use your shower more than your bath.

At the Sink

  • Turn off the water while you brush your teeth and shave.
  • Install low-flow faucet aerators in your sinks.
  • Fix any leaky faucets to conserve more water.

Toilets

  • Acquire low-flow toilet.
  • If you can’t replace your higher volume toilet, put a plastic bottle filled with water or a brick in your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used per flush.
  • To check for a toilet leak, put dye or food coloring into the tank. If color appears in the bowl without flushing, there’s a leak that should be repaired.
  • Don’t flush items down the toilet to get rid of them.Rather use your rubbish bin/.
