CDN Digital shares simple tips to efficiently conserve water:

Don’t keep water running when not in use

Some of us have this habit of leaving water running like when we brush our teeth or wash the dishes. It may not seem that your wasting a lot but if you do that everyday, it will lead to higher bills. And not only that, the water wasted could have been used for something else. 

Collect Rainwater

Install a rain barrel or cistern to collect rainwater from your roof. This harvested water can be used for outdoor tasks like watering plants, washing your car, or even flushing toilets, reducing the demand on treated water for such purposes.

Fix leaks

Addressing leaks in faucets, pipes, and toilets can save hundreds of gallons of water per month. Regularly inspecting and maintaining plumbing systems is essential for preventing water wastage.

Landscape management

Opt for drought-resistant plants in landscaping to minimize outdoor water usage. Utilize mulch to retain soil moisture and consider installing drip irrigation systems for targeted watering.

Reuse water

Explore opportunities for reusing greywater from sinks, showers, and laundry for irrigation purposes. Additionally, consider harvesting rainwater for non-potable uses like watering plants and flushing toilets.

By implementing these simple yet effective strategies, we can all play a part in conserving water and safeguarding this vital resource for future generations. 

Remember, every drop saved today contributes to a more sustainable and water-secure tomorrow.
