Water Conservation – Indoors

About 30% of water use happens in the home.  Some steps to reduce water consumption in the home include:

  • Install low flow toilets
  • Install low flow shower heads
  • Select water-efficient washing machines and dishwashers
  • Install aerators on taps
  • Wash only full loads
  • In summer, fill a jug and keep in fridge rather than running the tap to get cold water for each glass
  • If running the tap to get cold water, consider catching that water for indoor or outdoor plant irrigation
