Every year, thousands of rubles in the literal sense of the word can flow into the pipe. We are talking about the irrational use of water. How to reduce water supply costs and save natural resources? Read more about this below.
Check the condition of plumbing
Water leaks are possible due to a faulty faucet or toilet tank. Such losses are not very noticeable, but at the end of the month they can result in a round sum. Therefore, if the faucet even drips a little, do not just put a jar under it. It is important to close it completely until it stops when you are no longer using it. A small trickle of water from the tank also does not need to be ignored. To check if the tank is leaking, put some food coloring in it and observe if there is a problem. Spend just once to replace the plumbing elements and as a result, you will save several liters of water and hundreds of rubles.
Wash your dishes properly
In addition to the usual and familiar method (under a large flow stream), we recommend that you use another method. Put the dishes in the sink, first closing the drain hole. Fill it with water and pour in some detergent. Allow the dirt to soften and dissolve for a few minutes, then flush the water and remove food debris from the sink. Fill the sink again and rinse the dishes. This way, you can save a lot of money on monthly payments.
Use a mixer instead of two taps
The single-lever system mixes hot and cold streams faster, allowing you to get the optimal temperature. This means that you won’t have to wait any longer and waste your time trying to achieve the desired result.
When washing, fill the tank of the washing machine completely
The recommended loading volume is indicated on the machine itself and in the instructions: it is usually 3.5-7 kilograms. By fully filling the tank, you will also save time and detergent, because you will not have to do the Laundry again soon. If you are just going to buy a washing machine, take a closer look at modern models of class AA and front-loading.
Install water-saving systems
Most often, there is no need to drain the toilet tank completely. Buy a model that is equipped with the possibility of semi-watering, that is, it has two buttons. We recommend applying this solution to the shower as well. There are special watering cans and fittings that reduce the pressure.
Another way out is to use a special aerating nozzle. It will saturate the water flow with air bubbles, making it less powerful and softer.
As an output
Good motivation will help you apply these tips and achieve your goal. What is your goal? Don’t waste your money? Become more responsible and organized? Save your natural gifts? Whatever it is, remind yourself of the importance of the task. Some people are helped by notes or posters in the bathroom or in the kitchen. Up to 20 liters of water can “escape” in one minute! With this in mind, you can try to wash dishes or take a shower for at least 1 minute less. Teach your children these rules and set an example yourself. Your efforts will definitely be rewarded!
