Summer is here and Chennai faces a huge water shortage. Pls circulate the below in your friends and flat association groups.
Here are a few tips that will help you save water.
Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth - this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
Place a cistern displacement device in your toilet cistern to reduce the volume of water used in each flush.
Take a shorter shower. Shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute.
Always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher – this cuts out unnecessary washes in between.
Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year.
Install a water butt to your drainpipe and use the water collected to water your plants, clean your car and wash your windows.
Water your garden with a watering can rather than a hosepipe. A hosepipe uses 1,000 litres of water an hour.
Use the RO water purifier waste water for cleaning floor and washing vegetables. An RO purifier wastes 75% of water to give 25% output. So this is important.
Invest in water-efficient goods when you need to replace household products. You can now buy water-efficient showerheads, taps, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers and many other water-saving products.
