TAPS – SHOWERS
Apply water aerators to existing water taps and showers, before or after the spiral. They introduce air in the water stream to maintaining the pressure, whilst using less water. Use water-efficient shower and tap heads. They are inexpensive and easy to install.
PLANT CHOICE: Choose plants that do not require frequent watering.
GARDEN MAINTENANCE: Weed your garden often in order to minimize water absorbed by the weeds.
Install WCs with double system cisterns. Place a plastic bottle with sand in the toilet tank to reduce the quantity of water consumed.
Put food colouring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak!
Frequently check the recording on your water meter to promptly detect possible water leakages from your plumbing installations.
If your water meter counter is turning continuously, whilst your water tank is full and water is not being used, you have a leak!
Repair immediately any leaking taps, tanks, water cisterns or pipes.
Don’t leave the water running in vain until it becomes hot. Install a hot water circulator.
Don’t leave the water running in vain until it becomes cold. Keep water drinking bottles in the refrigerator and mix the cold water with the tap water.
Don’t fill the bathtub. Take a shower instead, without leaving the water running while soaping.
Don’t leave the children waste water while playing.
Don’t leave the water running in vain while brushing your teeth or while shaving.
Don’t leave the water running in vain while washing the dishes. Use the dishwasher and the washing-machine only if they are full.
Wash the fruits and the vegetables in a bowl. Use the same water for watering the flowers.
Clean these areas by sweeping or simple mopping without using the hose.
Use a bucket and a sponge. Don’ t use the hose.
Inform immediately the WBL for any leakage or water loss in the town.
