Besides financial benefits, saving water is extremely important in terms of ecological interest.
Our drinking water needs to be purified very sophisticated, and our water reserves are not as big as you might think. Every drop you use in your bathroom needs to be processed to make sure that we can use it again. Luckily, it's easy to save water at home and especially in the bathroom. First of all, let's have a look at the shower.
Shower And Sinks
- Obviously, the easiest way to save water in the shower is to lower your showering time. Believe me, you don't need 15 minutes, so try to keep the showering time at 5 minutes.
- You can switch the water off when you soap yourself to lower the water usage even more.
- When you implemented that, you should make sure that your showerhead doesn't have a high flow rate. The flow rate is a measurement for the amount of water that your shower head delivers in one minute. It is measured in gallons per minute (GPM), and modern water saving shower heads have flow rates below 2.2 GPM. Make sure that you don't use faucets with high flowrates in your shower and on your sinks.
- As a last tip, I would suggest that you take a shower instead of a full bath as often as possible because a full bath takes much more water when you use a modern showerhead.
- A huge amount of drinking water gets flushed down the toilet every day.
- Make sure that you use a water conservation toilet to minimize this water demand.
- If you don't want to upgrade your old toilet you can simply put a few stones in your toilet's cistern. This way, the volume of the cistern will be smaller, and hence it will be filled with less water.
- If you really want to take it serious, you can install a system that utilizes waste-water from the shower and sinks for your toilet.
As you can see, it's pretty simple to save water in the bathroom. Implement these tips today and you will do nature and your wallet a favour.
