Water Conservation Tips

Easy Water Conservation Tips

  • Fix leaking pipes or dripping taps.
  • When rinsing vegetables fill a bowl or the sink with some water instead of letting the tap run.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Fill up a bottle and put it in the fridge for drinking instead of running the tap until cold water comes out.
  • Water lawns early in the morning to allow the water to percolate into the soil and not evaporate immediately due to solar energy.
  • Allow lawns to grown longer in dry weather so that the grass retains the moisture and does not require such frequent watering (also good for insects!).
  • Use a drip irrigation system instead of a sprinkler.
  • Cover swimming pools when not in use.
  • Use swimming pool water from the back-washing or draining operations to water lawns and plants.
  • Collect rainwater to water plants.
Rainwater harvesting allows water to be collected so that it can be used later. Source: CSIR 2003
