Uff! Chubhthi jalthi garmi ka mausam aya!
Summer is back again! People are dying due to sunstrokes and due to the lack of drinking water. Whether it is Summer or Rainy season, it is our duty to save water. Creative Nails is listing a few easy ways to save water.
- Turn the faucet/tap off while you are brushing your teeth, shaving, washing your hands, doing dishes, and so on
- Check your plumbing for leaks, especially leaking toilets and faucets
- Install low-flow shower heads and faucets or faucet aerators
- Take shorter showers
- Use waste water or gray water from the bath, washing machines or dish washing on the garden
- Get or create a dual-flush toilet. This is basically a toilet that flushes a smaller amount of water for when you pee and more water for pooping, thereby saving water
- Replace your clothes washing machine with a high-efficiency washer. Wash full laundry or dish loads
- By installing a water meter you can raise your awareness and consequently reduce your water intake
- Cover your swimming pool. This helps to prevent evaporation
- Maintain your sprinklers and irrigation. If you have irrigation on timers, watch it run. Fix broken sprinkler heads and pipes and make sure that spray patterns are directed where they are intended
- Wash the car at a car wash. Car washes may use less water than you can use at home. Car washes also collect and filter the waste water appropriately
- Care for your lawn in a more water-efficient manner. Only water the areas that need it, and only when there has not been enough rain. Use a trigger nozzle on your house or use a watering can to save water
- Use mulch on your garden to retain moisture
- If you’re collecting rainwater, be sure to mosquito-proof your collection system.
- Due to water rights laws, collecting rain water may be illegal in your area, so check with your community or county first.
- If you choose to reclaim gray water for garden use, make sure that any soaps or detergents you use are safe for that purpose. Don’t use gray water for food plants.
