Water Conservation

Water Conservation

Conservation is the optimal use of natural resources by reducing their use, increasing their consumption efficiency or using alternative methods. It is a set of procedures and modifications that reduce energy consumption without compromising the comfort or productivity of individuals and the use of energy when needed.

Conservation inside the house

Kitchen

  • Install water saving devices, as they provide 20-30% of water
  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a basin or container filled with water
  • Be sure to tighten the taps after each use
  • Dissolve frozen foods and meat by removing them from the freezer and placing them in the refrigerator for hours before preparing to remove the ice on them. This will ensure the health of the food instead of opening the water on it

The Bathroom

Washbasin

  • Install water saving devices, as they provide 20-30% of water
  • Close the water faucet during the entire period of shaving, ablution, hand washing, cleaning the teeth or use a large glass of water instead of opening the tap
  • Be sure to close the taps tightly before sleeping and when you leave the house

Shower

  • Use the shower instead of filling the bathtub with water
  • Avoid bathing for long periods, shortening the shower period for a minute or two provides about 150 gallons of water per month
  • Gather the flowing water before it is heated in a bucket for irrigation

Toilet

  • Place the toilet plastic bag to reduce the amount of water used
  • Inspect the toilet tank continuously to detect leaks, and this can be done by adding colored material to the tank
  • Make sure the toilet handle is in the normal position and not lower down, leading to leakage of water inside the toilet

Internal Leaks

  • Internal leaks can be detected by closing all taps and monitoring the meter to ensure that the meter indicator is not moving
  • In the event of leakage of water in the water connections and pipes, appoint a technician to locate and repair the leakage
  • Identify the location of the main water valve of the house, which is often near the water meter to stop the flow of water to the home in the event of an emergency

Conservation outside the house

The Garden

  • Use modern irrigation systems such as rotary spray and spray irrigation or drip irrigation to irrigate the garden
  • Cultivation of plants that need small amounts of water
  • Spread a layer of organic fertilizer around the plant to help plants maintain moisture and save water, time and cost
  • Take care of early morning watering (8 am) or in the evening (after 18:00) to reduce water vapor evaporation from the sun
  • Use a timer to remind you when to start and stop when the garden is irrigated (control system)
  • Use treated wastewater to irrigate your garden or plants

Swimming Pool

  • Inspect and maintain the water walls, floors and connections of the swimming pool periodically
  • Check the swimming pool for any leakage and repair of the water immediately
  • Cover the swimming pool with a suitable umbrella to reduce evaporation rates

Car Wash

  • Raising awareness of help groups at home not to waste water when washing the car
  • Installation of nozzles on water hoses
  • Use about two pounds of water to wash your car instead of using a water hose directly

External Leaks

  • Look for any water leaks in the water connections and external pipes and appoint a technician to repair them
  • Repair or change external taps that do not close tightly
