Water saving When the Dry Season
To prevent water shortages worsened, its use must be handled properly. Here are some ways to reduce consumption, and waste water:
1. Use a low-flow showerhead
Many people misunderstand that the showerhead with a low flow due to the poor water pressure. Actually, this is precisely the water-saving showerheads utilize air to provide showering experience that is similar to a regular shower.
So no need to worry, low-flow shower not only saves money but also reduces water consumption.
2. Turn off the tap
Turn off the water while brushing your teeth may seem trivial. But, did you know that doing this could save up to 25 gallons of water per month? In addition, a leaking faucet can throw water in vain up to 350 gallons per year.
3. Use water back
When washing fruits and vegetables, use of water in the pot or bowl. By doing so, the water collected is used for rinsing, can be easily reused for watering plants.
4. Use the "point of use" water heater
This small heaters provide hot water instantly without having to waste water while waiting warm. While the hot water demand is large enough, the water heater is too small and does not require a large space for storage.
5. Use the machine and pressure hoses for washing cars
Get rid of your old garden hose and use the machine and pressure hoses (pressure washer) to the car wash to clean. This machine not only saves up to 80 percent of water use, but also saves a lot of time.
