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.
- 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/.
