Water Conservation

Here are some conservation tips for saving water. Never use your toilet as a wastebasket, take shorter showers or take a shallow bath instead of a shower. Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving, while waiting for hot water from the tap, catch the flow in a watering can and use it for watering house or garden plants. Keep a bottle of tap water in the refrigerator instead of running the faucet for cold water. Wash vegetables and fruit in a basin. Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full. By following these tips, you can save hundreds of gallons of water a day.
