Nearly 75% of all water used in the home is used in the bathroom. With new water-saving devices, bathroom water use can be reduced by as much as 50% with little or no change in lifestyle.
Replace old shower heads with a low-flow shower head (9.6L/minute) as it reduces water use by more than 60% with no loss of performance. Reduce your hot water consumption by up to 50% by using low-flow aerated showerheads, and save 15% off your monthly power bill. The air added to the water keeps the water pressure strong while saving you hot water and money.
Reduce the time you spend in the shower, even it is just a minute or two.
Turn off the shower while you are shampooing.
If you use the tub, bathe in only a couple of centimeters of water instead of a full tub.
Take showers rather than baths as showers use about a third as much water.
A water efficient toilet (6L or less) uses up to 80% less water than a standard toilet, and with dual flush toilets offer even greater savings.
Install faucet aerators on your bathroom taps.
Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth or shaving; only use water when you need to rinse.
