Suggestions for saving waterPosted Sunday, December 2, 2007, at 8:27 AM
I would bet that many of us conserve water. How about sharing some ideas? If we see some ideas that are on the fringe, just let it go with EEUUWW, or we may miss some really good ones.
Our water temperature takes about a gallon before we can wash the dished or take a shower, so we save it for a number of other re-uses.
Here comes a eeuuww. If I have had a quiet day, will little exertion, I don't take a shower until the next day.
Here is an interesting link for calculating water consumption. http://www.csgnetwork.com/waterusagecalc... It might be best to use Internet Explorer unless you have Java controls on your other browsers.
I wish we had our house set up to recycle "grey" water but we don't so a retrofit is foe when I found one of those "round tuits".
Another round tuit is to collect rainwater (when it rains). We do a little but I want to collect 5-10,000 gallons for my garden. I never like putting city water on it anyway.
I have a few more ideas, but what about you. Do we save water while shaving, combine loads for laundry, ?
