Save Money By Saving Water

Dry earth in the Sonora desert, Mexico.

As summer approaches the drought season starts. I have gathered some excellent tips on how to save water. of course not everyone will be sensible enough to use them, but each person that does makes a difference and of course saves you money on your next water bill.

  • Place a bucket in the shower unit when showering and use it to flush the toilet.
  • When you brush your teeth don't leave the tap running.
  • Students should take a bottle of water with them to drink at school as most of the water from drinking fountains is wasted.
  • Use a bowl to do the washing up in and use the used water to flush the toilet with.
  • If you have a dishwasher don't use it, if you do have to use it, and I don't know why, make sure it is completely full before starting it.
  • Don't flush down if there is just urine in the toilet, wait for the bigger jobs before flushing.
  • Turn the tap on just half pace when you wash your hands.
  • Use a broom to sweep your drives instead of a hose.
  • Don't wash your bicycles, just give them a damp wipe.
  • Take a short shower instead of a long one.
  • If you need to water your garden, use rainwater that can be collected from gutter downpipes leading to barrels.
