Water Wastage in the Home
People waste water in their homes without even realizing it. We have become so accustomed to have a 24 hour supply of water to meet all of our needs from cooking, to cleaning, to drinking, that we sometimes forget that we do not have an infinite supply of water. Besides using renewable energy in the home to cut back on the use of electricity, we must also learn how to save our water supply. Here are a few tips on how to do so.
The first thing you should do is check for leaks in taps, pipes, and dishwasher hoses which can cause over 2,000 litres of water per month to be wasted. Repairing any leaks will save you a ton of money and you will also be saving the environment.
In the same way that you can buy renewable energy, you can also buy water efficient taps that will make the most of your water and will ensure that you are not wasting any while the tap is running.
To save both water and energy, if you're not already using green energy, then you should wait until your dishwasher is completely full before running it. On average, dishwashers use approximately 40 litres of water per load, but thanks to features that some dishwasher have, you can specify that it is a light load, or rinse only, or air dry. All of these features allow you to save both water and energy.
By using renewable energy in your home and cutting back on the amount of water you use in a day you will be doing your part in saving our ozone layer. On top of that, you will also be preventing a whole in your wallet.
