How to save water at home
In the kitchen and laundry
Wash fruits and vegetables in a bowl of water instead of running tap water.
Collect the water you use to wash fruits and vegetables and reuse it to water your plants.
The tap water is drinkable but, so as not to lose a single drop, do not fill your glass directly from the tap, better fill a pitcher with water.
Soap all the dishes and, until later, rinse them all together.
Use your dishwasher or washing machine only when they are full. You can save up to a thousand gallons a month.
In the bathroom
You have always been told to turn off the water when you brush your teeth but did you know that you can save up to 25 gallons of water if you do?
In case you need to leave the faucet or watering can open to have hot water, place a container or a bucket to collect it and then reuse it in the toilet or to water plants.
If you shorten the time you take to bathe a minute or two, you will save up to 150 gallons of water per month.
Instead of throwing tissues in the toilet, throw them in the trash can.
If your shower is capable of filling up to one gallon in less than 20 seconds, replace it with a more efficient model. You can save up to 750 gallons of water per month.
Close the shower while you wash your hair to save up to 150 gallons of water per month.
In the garden
Use a broom instead of the hose to clean your stool and garage.
If the water drains too much after watering the grass, water your garden in shorter periods for better absorption.
Install new toilets with more efficient models.
Use water sprinklers for large areas of grass. Use small patches to prevent leaks in these sprinklers.
Water your garden in the morning or at dusk, because cooler temperatures prevent evaporation of water.
If you have a water irrigation control, install a rain sensor so the system will not activate when it is raining.
Reduce the amount of grass in your garden by planting bushes or other types of foliage trees.
Do not water your garden on windy days, since most of the water will disperse or evaporate.
