1.Installing a tap aerator is cheap and easy to install, and with them the efficiency of tap water consumption is improved, as they manage to reduce water consumption by more than fifty percent, offering a good water flow.
2.Checking for leaks from taps and toilets Leaky taps and toilets are great water wasters, but they are very easy to fix. A quick solution may be to adjust the float, in the toilet tank, to lower the water level, which will prevent the water from overflowing.
3.If the toilet is old, but we do not want to change it, we can install a system that reduces the amount of water per flush.
4.One or two minutes of reduction can save up to 1000 litres per month.
5.Food should not be defrosted using water, the most advisable thing is to defrost food at night, putting it in the fridge or defrosting it using the microwave.
6.Use the dishwasher only when its load capacity is full.
7.Use the washing machine only with full loads of laundry.
8.When watering the plants, try to do so before 6 a.m. and after 8 p.m., this will reduce evaporation and water loss due to the sun and wind.9 Use a broom, instead of a hose, to clean.
We will save 150 liters of water, each time.
10.Using a nozzle with automatic closure saves 150 litres at a time.11Reducing watering times, from 1 to 3 minutes, or eliminating some watering cycle each week, allows us to save from 3000 to 6000 litres of water per month.12Spa covers are also useful for maintaining heat so that the cost of energy required to re-heat the water is reduced.13Using mulch on flower pots and plants exposed to the soil reduces evaporation of water from the soil and keeps it moist, so the need for water is reduced and we will water less often.14Adjust and monitor irrigation systems. This will ensure that we are watering the lawn, not the sidewalk. We will save 2000 liters of water per month.15When designing the garden, it is desirable that we choose native plants, which consume less water and give less work than imported plants.
