How to make your washroom a 'no water wastage' zone
Jun 29, 2018
Did you know? An average Indian household uses around 150 litres of water per person everyday. That means a family can fill up an entire swimming pool in a year just with the amount of water they use! A large portion of this water is included in your long showers, misuse of running water or faulty plumbing. So, what can you do to make a washroom a ‘No Water Wastage’ zone? Here are some tips that could help:
Buckets not Showers
Mothers know best; And this ring true for water conservation as well! Often times she may have encouraged you to take a bath with a simple mug and bucket instead of showers. If so she has helped saved you around 30 to 40 liters, as an average shower takes up 50 liters of water.
Fix those pipes!
Sometimes you may notice that your tap might be leaking very tiny amounts of water. Small drips actually make a big difference. To see this in action, place a mug under your leaky faucet and notice the water level after a few hours. You can use this water for brushing, shaving instead of using running water. Even better, get them fixed immediately!
Upgrade your toilet
Old water fixtures were designed to increase water volume, but not to conserve. Try installing new water fixtures such as aerators (faucets that increase water surface area but reduce amount of water) and new toilets. Old flushes used around 15 litres of water, while new ones use half that amount.
