Evaluate your Household Usage
In order to save more water, you need to evaluate, in relation to your daily routine, how it is individually used, how it is used per household and how you can adapt to make every drop count.
Think before you Turn on the Tap
To adapt you need to think before you turn on the tap. Think of what you require and for how long you require it. Think of how you can use that water and reuse it to be more water efficient around your home and working environment. Spending money on water saving equipment, tools and fixtures might seem like a waste to some, but adapting to your habits can make a difference not only for now when we need to be more water conscious, but will even save you money in the future.
Two Rooftops Better than one
After establishing how you use water, talk to your neighbour and find out if there are similarities. Chances are their water usage habits are relatively the same as yours. Find out what their requirements are and if in any way possible, collaborate with your neighbour to share expenses and improve both your water usage situations. For example, a water tank that collects water from both rooftops can reduce water usage in and around both homes, saving water from not only one household, but two.
