Home Water Conservation Tip from Dorothy

We are conserving water in our home by applying similar principles as recycling: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. One way we reduce our water consumption is with a low-flow shower head attachment, and taking very short showers. Reusing & Recycling water is accomplished by having a pail, bowl or bucket under each faucet. (Rinse dishes in a bowl, wash hands in a pail, capture & scoop shower water into a bucket.) This allows all the used water to be captured for reuse and recycling for watering plants, as well as dumping into the toilet to flush via gravity.

Home Water Conservation Tip from Connie

We are saving our shower water and sink water and using it to flush our toilet and we are using the rule “if it’s yellow let it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down”. We are saving our water from washing and rinsing dishes to use to water my plants on the deck.
