Water is slowly dwindling as each day passes. That is why it is important that you simply conserve water. You simply need to comprehend and exercise both the engineering and behavioral aspect in regard to water conservation. Every nation is looking for ways of saving water as they all are facing drinking water crises. Many of us think that to save water it requires lots of efforts, but it’s not like that. What we can do in order to save water is, if we change our habits and lifestyle and make ourselves aware of the fact that our water resources are limited, and then we can save thousands of gallons of water.
We can start our saving water campaign at our homes. The first step should be of checking all your leaky faucets and toilets. If you find any kind of issue like it is not working properly or water is continually running out of it, then immediately replace it with new. Keeping the water conservation concept in mind, companies have started making toilets which use lesser amount of water when flushing. However, if it’s not possible to change your toilet, you will be able to conserve water by filling a two-liter soda bottle with water and put it within the
toilet tank. It saves plenty of water.
One simple thing that can also save water is water the plants and lawn in the evening, if you water the plant in daytime, then the chances of evaporation will be maximized and plants will not be able to use it. One more thing that can help us save water is if we take a shower instead of taking a bath as only half of water will be used, thousands of gallons of water can be saved.
Some people use washing machine when only few clothes are there to wash, it takes lots of water and that is of no use.

Use washing machine when large quantity of clothes are there to wash, it would be a wise decision. Same thing can be applied for dish washing. Never forget to repair leakage in pipes as it could be wasting up of water. Sometimes people ignore dripping of taps, if taps is repaired and regularly checked, then gallons of water can be saved.
