Tips To Conserve Water


  1. Promptly repair any leaks in and around your taps. (One leak can waste several thousand liters of water per year.) – Learn More..
  2. Always turn taps off tight so they do not drip.
  3. Use an aerator and/or a water flow-reducer attachment on your tap to reduce your water usage.
  4. hand-washing dishes When hand-washing dishes, never run water continuously. Wash dishes in a partially filled sink and then rinse them using the spray attachment on your tap.
  5. dishwasher, use it only to wash full loads If you have an electric dishwasher, use it only to wash full loads, and use the shortest cycle possible. Many dishwashers have a conserver/water-miser cycle.
  6. When brushing your teeth Water When brushing your teeth, turn the water off while you are actually brushing. Use short bursts of water for cleaning your brush. (This saves about 80% of the water normally used.)
  7. Shaving, turn off the water When washing or shaving, partially fill the sink and use that water rather than running the tap continuously. (This saves about 60% of the water normally used.) Use short bursts of water to clean razors.
  8. low-flow shower heads Use either low-flow shower heads or adjustable flow-reducer devices on your shower heads. (They reduce flow by at least 25%.)
  9. low-flush toiletsYou can reduce water usage by 40% to 50% by installing low-flush toilets.
  10. Wash only full loads in your washing machine. Wash only full loads in your washing machine. Use the shortest cycle possible for washing clothes and use the “suds-saver” feature if your machine has one.
  11. Water Bucket Use watering buckets rather than a garden hose. Lawns and gardens require only 5 millimeters of water per day during warm weather. Less is needed during spring, fall, or cool weather.
  12. Use watering buckets Water lawns every three to five days, rather than for a short period every day. In warm weather, apply 5 millimeters of water for each day since the last watering.
  13. Water during the cooler part of the day Water during the cool part of the day, in the morning or evening. Do not water on windy days. Do not over-water in anticipation of a shortage. Soil cannot store extra water.
  14. Use shut-off timers Use shut-off timers or on-off timers, if possible. Do not turn on sprinklers and leave for the day.
