Avoid long showers. Shortening your shower by a minute or 2 can save you up to 150 gallons a month.
To minimise the amount of water used for a bath, plug the drain first and fill the tub only 1/3 full. Initially there will be a burst of cold water, but that will be warmed when hot water comes through.
You can save more than 100 gallons a week if you keep the tap closed while you shave.
Replace tap filters and showerheads around the house with water flow reducers. Water flow reducers on taps save 50-70% of water.
When adjusting water temperatures, turn the water flow down instead of increasing it to balance the temperature.
Close your water heaters in the summer. The water gets naturally heated at that time of year.
Place a plastic bottle filled with water or sand in your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used in each flush.
Don’t throw waste down your toilet. It leads to unnecessary flushing and increases the risk of your toilet getting blocked.
Upgrade your toilet to newer improved models with a dual flush system. It will save you water and money long term.
If your toilet flush handle regularly sticks in the flush position letting water run constantly, consider fixing or replacing it.
By turning off the tap when you brush your teeth, you can save approximately 3 gallons of water! Filling a cup to rinse your mouth saves about 4 gallons.
When you wait for water to heat up after turning on the tap, save it in a bucket or empty bottle and use it to water your house plants.
Invest in a good quality exhaust fan and do not leave it on for long hours.
