ways to save water:

Try not to flush away waste – cosmetics tissues, cotton balls and so on. Have shorter showers (a 5 minute shower use around 40 litres – a large portion of that of a shower. Unless you have a power shower which is terrible. In the event that you do have a power shower consider changing to a circulated air through shower head.) Turn off the water while you're brushing your teeth. Verify your dishwasher is full, utilize the eco setting and don't trouble pre-washing plates – simply rub them. Put a container of cool water in your fridge, so you don't waste water waiting for the tap to run cold every time you need a drink. Put a cleaning up dish or attachment into your sink to catch overabundance and utilization it to wash your veg in or water plants. Just fill your kettle with what you're needing.

These are all very good suggestions, as is &AbbyG 's suggestion to shower with a friend. My missus and I often save time and water by sharing a shower.

These are all excellent ways of saving water. If you have any leaking faucets or plumbing problems, you should also get them fixed. My mother used to save rain water and use it for washing clothes.

When I used to have a friend with whom to shower, I always ended up staying longer than I would normally. What's up with that?

Water is very important. We should save it.

Great tips! I'm not sure what a power shower is, but if you have a showerhead that uses a lot of water, you can sometimes get a low-flow aerator for free from the local water utility.

Yes, I always try to use less water by taking shorter showers, but the thing is, when my college age son is home on holidays, he tends to take way to long of showers.
