8 water-saving tips for the bathroom
Fortunately, more and more people are realizing the importance of conserving resources and putting a stop to waste. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to find water-saving tips that are easy to implement at home…and everywhere!
In the bathroom
- Reduce the flow rate at the tap by a quarter by using a jetbreaker. You’ll still have enough water to rinse a toothbrush or wash your hands, and you’ll still save a lot of water;
- Turn off water while brushing teeth or soaping hands. There’s no point in letting it sink for nothing.
- Take a shower – a short one – instead of filling the bathtub.
- Choose a low-flow showerhead or one that cuts off the water supply (while maintaining the water temperature) while you’re soaping up.
- Collect dripping water while you adjust the temperature in the shower using a bucket. This water can then be used, for example, to fill the toilet flush tank or to water your plants.
- Make sure your toilet tank is leak-free by simply adding a few drops of dye to the water. The appearance of color in the bowl is a sure sign that a leak is present… and could cause you to waste hundreds of liters of water per year, without even realizing it!
- Place a plastic-wrapped brick or sand-filled bottle in the toilet tank to reduce the amount of water wasted each time the toilet is flushed.
- Install a dual-flush toilet for new installations (or when you install your next toilet)… because a large volume of water isn’t always necessary…
