How Can I Save Water Inside My Home?

Wasted water

Water is a luxury that has become part of our daily lives. From taking a shower to brushing our teeth, to drinking, water is an important part of our daily lives.

It is important we all do our part to save water in and around the home. Small changes can make a big difference and it is important we all have a water wise mindset. With a few simple changes, we can all do our part to conserve water.

Read on to learn 3 ways you can save water inside your home including:

  • Laundry
  • Bathing
  • Dishes


Save water in your laundry by ensuring you have a full load before washing clothes. Most washing machines have adjustable settings. The heavy-duty soil setting can use more water and extends wash time. For most loads, the normal settings will do. Choose the appropriate water level setting, small, medium or large, for the load if that’s how your machine works. This feature automatically determines the load size and the amount of water needed.


Generally, taking a shower uses less water than a full bath. As lovely as a long shower to start or end the day is, it’s important to keep shower times to a minimum. Start the timer as you jump in the shower and when it goes off you know it’s time to jump out. Further reduce your water usage by using a low flow showerhead.


Kitchen sink

Whether washing dishes by hand or using a dishwasher, there are ways you can minimise your water usage. To remove a build up of food, soak dishes rather than scrubbing with the water freely flowing. When using a dishwasher, run full loads of dishes only and install an energy star high efficiency model to save water and energy.
