10 easy ways to save water at home

ways to save water at home

By making a few simple changes in your daily routine, installing a few simple devices, and becoming conscious of how and where you use water, you can significantly reduce your water consumption. See our 10 easy ways to save water at home here.

Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting

Why waste the clean water that falls on your roof, just to rely on purchased utility water? Rooftop rainwater harvesting is a simple strategy for home water conservation and for many households should be considered a priority.

Home Hydroponics

Hydroponics is a fantastic way to grow crops. It is extremely water efficient by design. If you have a conventional vegetable patch, switching to hydroponics will not only increase yield, but it may save a considerable amount of water.

Greywater Reuse

Greywater Reuse Systems

Carefully planned irrigation with greywater is a common practice in many places and can be done safely. If your bathroom and laundry greywater can be reused in accordance with local regulation and good design, this just makes good sense.

What is Every Drop Saved All About?

Water. Arguably our most precious resource. It is essential to our daily lives in so many ways, yet we so often take it for granted. Here at Every Drop Saved we are passionate about making small changes, at home, to reduce our reliance on utility supplied water. And for those of us ‘off-the-grid’, ensuring a sustainable, reliable supply or water from our own sources. 

What can you do in your home? Start the discussion with your family and community and take some simple steps towards water self-sufficiency.

and Why Should we Save Water?

Save Money!

Reducing your water demand on the utility supply can save you significant money on your water bills. Price forecasts for many jurisdictions anticipate increasing costs due to water scarcity. Why not do what you can now to avoid this escalating cost.

Protect The Environment!

Reducing your demand on water utility supply reduces the energy required to process and deliver water to homes, businesses, and industry. It also reduces the embodied energy required in all of that infrastructure. There are also many localised environmental impacts associated with water extraction and delivery practices and your specific impact depends on your local context. What is certain is that reducing your usage and working towards home water self-sufficiency, will have a positive impact on our environment.  

Prepare For Future Water Scarcity!

Despite a sense of water abundance in our cities and communities, water is not limitless. Sadly for many, ensuring adequate water supply is a daily struggle. If you have it, you are very fortunate, however we should all recognise that our changing climate puts many of our water sources at risk. Statistically, water shortages, water restrictions and for many, water rationing, is increasing. The reality is that the future of many of our major water sources is uncertain. Why not take yourself out of that equation and take some simple steps now to reduce or eliminate your reliance on utility supplied water.
