Waste Not Want Not 

Water is a blessing of Nature that we cannot afford to waste. However, not many of us pay attention to the many ways in which we waste water on a daily basis.

Taps are left running while washing dishes or brushing our teeth which not realising how much water is wasted running down the drains.

Water is a blessing of Nature that we cannot afford to waste. However, not many of us pay attention to the many ways in which we waste water on a daily basis.

Taps are left running while washing dishes or brushing our teeth which not realising how much water is wasted running down the drains.

As well as a disservice to Nature, it creates an extra burden in the back pocket when it comes to paying for your water supply.

So, let’s start using water smartly and work on ways to minimise waste. The following are some helpful tips to guide you.

Fix minor leaks around the home
By fixing minor leaks around the home, you can save hundreds of litres on a weekly basis. The drip drop from the kitchen tap may not seem a lot at first, but small drops make an ocean.

Talk to your local plumber who is always happy to come and do a home check.

Use a water-saving shower head
By installing a flow restrictor on your shower, you will reduce water flow in a showerhead to save you money and reduce water consumption.

You can also install tap aerators in your shower. By doing this, you will get aerated water that has a higher flow but will actually use less water.

Limit your showers and avoid standing under the water for too long. 

Reuse your laundry water as grey water
Greywater may have some signs of dirt, hence the name, greywater. However, if you reuse it, you can save a lot of water. For example, you can use it to water trees and plants at home. However, don’t water vegetables or any edibles with it.

Switch to dual flush toilets
Dual flush toilets handle wastes differently. It helps to save water by giving the user two choices for flushing.

Use the half flush option with liquid waste requiring less water. Use the full flush option for solid waste which will use more water.

If you would like to book your local plumber to fix leaks, upgrade toilets or to separate pipes for greywater, contact Shane on 0414 989 522 for all your domestic plumbing requirements.

With a little effort, you can save a lot of water.
