Saving on water is more convenient than it seems at first glance. At the same time, you save on energy or gas that heats the water. Moreover, water prices are rising year after year. For example, in Prague this year the price per cubic has increased by 1.81 crowns and water and sewage charges will cost CZK 77.65 per cubic.
Turn off the water whenever possible
One fifth of Czechs brush their teeth with the tap fully turned on. If you are among them, you will lose up to 60 liters of water every day. Therefore, switch off the water or pour it into the crucible during cleaning.
The aerator pays off
The aerator is an economical nozzle and tap extension that enriches the flow of water with oxygen. The current thus seems higher, but the consumption is actually lower. It takes longer to fill the water, but you can save money, for example, by rinsing hands and dishes
Get a dishwasher
Speaking of dishes, get a dishwasher. It takes about 10 liters of water to wash the dishes, but it also consumes ten times more when washing under running water . If you do not want or can not get a dishwasher, at least wash up the sink.
A new washing machine pays off
Significantly less water is needed for new appliances than old ones. Also take time to study the programs and turn on the prewash and rinse only when it is really needed.
Take a shower instead of a bathtub
When showering demonstrably use less water than bathing in a tub impregnated, by some estimates as much as 50%. Also, be sure to turn off the water while you are soaping.
A small flush saves up to five thousand per year
To distinguish between a small and a large flush in a toilet is really worth it. Also be careful not to run through – even a weakly running flush will remove up to 150 liters of water per day.
Save even on small items
Seemingly insignificant water spills that run into waste every day can deprive you of a few thousand per year. Therefore, water the flowers with unsalted water after boiling eggs (this water is full of nutrients and the plants will appreciate it), do not pour the remnants of water from the kettle and do not exaggerate the water drain before filling a glass of drinking water.
And just for order – drinking tap water is worth more than buying bottled water. You can add even more water to a larger container to increase savings.
