As the adage goes, water is life.
Despite its unattractive appearance, the water is crucial to the human race's survival. It's difficult to fathom life without water.
We rely on water for our food, health, livelihoods, and recreational activities. Water, on the other hand, has the ability to take life away. And the lack of water can be even more dangerous. Water-stressed areas currently house 700 million people. This figure is predicted to rise to 1.8 billion by 2025, accounting for nearly a quarter of the world's population.
It would be a euphoric feeling to know that a necessary element like water is readily available in large quantities. This, however, is a far cry from the harsh reality of the situation. Nature has bestowed it upon us as a priceless gift. As a result, there is only a finite amount of water accessible on the planet, and it is up to us to use it wisely.
NEED OF SAVING WATER
Water has been used to suit the requirements of current generations while also providing for future generations.
However, due to careless water usage, this delicate equilibrium has recently been disrupted. If this tendency continues, there will soon be a scarcity of this essential resource. The amount of useable water available has been decreased to a critical low level due to constant wastage and contamination of rivers, lakes, and other water bodies. We must respect and value every drop of this priceless resource, making water conservation a top priority.
METHODS OF SAVING WATER
1- TAKE LESS SHOWER: It is one of the simplest methods for conserving water at home. You could also be wasting up to 5 gallons (18 litres) of water each minute, depending on the efficiency of your showerhead. To save water, take a 5-minute shower or less. This simple change in your daily routine can help you save up to 70 litres of water per shower. You can also save water by replacing your showerhead with a low-flow showerhead.
2- TURN OFF TAP WHILE BRUSHING:By turning off the tap when brushing your teeth or washing your hands and face, you can save up to 20 litres each day. This water conservation approach is simple to implement in any home, and the result – similar to water-saving toilets – is two-fold: water conservation and cheaper water bills.
3- TURN OFF TAP WHILE WASHING UTENSILS: Wait until the sink is full before washing dishes one at a time under a running tap, as this is one of the recommended water-saving measures. A full load of laundry is also a water-saving option while washing in the machine. When it comes to hand-washing, though, using less detergent means using less water for rinsing.
One of the most effective strategies to save water is to turn off the faucet when washing clothes and dishes. More than 50 litres of water will be saved per day as a result of this. Furthermore, if you use a washing machine or dishwasher, you can conserve water and electricity by following this tip.
4- FIX PIPES LEAKAGES: Apart than shutting off taps when not in use, a routine maintenance check and repair/replace old leaking taps, pipes, and toilets is another approach to save water. You can save up to 75 litres of water per day by doing so, which is significant and adds to your other water conservation efforts at home.
5- INSTALL A WATER SAVING TOILET FLUSH: Flushing toilets is one of the most common sources of residential water waste. Old toilets are reported to use as much as 5 to 7 litres of water per flush. You may save up to 700 litres of water per year by installing the latest water-saving toilet flush technology.
