Water is life and as such we shouldn’t waste it. At national water, we are after maximizing your usage and thus recommend responsible and wise usage of water. This will save you on your bill and also conserve the environment. Here are some tips to save water.
Monitor your water bill.
Your bill is the first step in saving water. Take note of how much water you use and make adjustments.
Take showers; A bath usually uses more water since you have to fill up a bath tab or basin. Showers on the other hand take a shorter time and use up less water. If you already use showers, you can consider taking shorter ones.
Wash on a full load.
If you use a washing machine or dish washer, make sure you wash on a full load. Washing few clothes means you will have to wash again later which is more water used.
Wash in a full sink. When washing dishes or utensils, fill up the sink then wash instead of leaving the tap running.
Re use water.
Many times we pour away water that can still be used. Water from rinsing clothes for example can be recycled to flush a toilet, wash a car or mop a house.
Repair leaks promptly.
Leaks are one of the biggest wastes of water especially since the water lost is usually clean and untouched. In case you have a leak or suspect one, have it repaired promptly so as to save water.
Liquid waste doesn’t require the same amount of water to flush as solid waste. Flushing the toilet accounts for 30% of water usage so to save this, install a water saving toilet. These have two flush mechanisms, one which empties the entire cistern and one which lets out less water.
