Take a pledge to preserve water for saving earth on World Water Day

Water, water, everywhere, not a drop to drink," said Coleridge in his poem where a sailor was stranded amidst a saltwater lake. Water is considered to be one of the most vital natural resources on earth for all living beings. We can’t even imagine a single day without water. Unfortunately this resource has been facing threats and the world is running out of fresh water. Studies have shown that this is a global fresh water crisis. Scarcity of fresh water will make us stand in a situation that is beyond imagination. Increasing temperature and populations both threaten this precious resource and created a severe problem.

That day is not far away when we will be looking for drinking water but not even a single drop will be there. According to a study by UNICEF, half of the world's population could be living in areas facing water scarcity by 2025.

It is said that if there is a will then there is a way. So let’s hope for a better tomorrow with little efforts to save water. There are a few ways to conserve water, follow these guidelines and contribute to save water:

Keep a check on running water

If you're brushing your teeth or washing your hands, don't leave the tap running. You've probably heard this one before so, turn off the faucet while cleaning and then turn it back on when you're ready to rinse.

Fix any leakage asap

Drip Drip Drip! Keep an eye out for leaking taps, dripping shower heads, rusted pipes, and other symptoms of water damage. To avoid wasting any more water, find the solution to the leak and fix it right away.

Only wash full loads

Before you start washing utensils or clothes, make sure they are both full. Use your energy-saving options for light washes and smaller loads if your machine has them. Look for water-saving machines with settings that allow you to adjust to load size when it's time to buy a new machine. Also, use sensor taps in your kitchen and washbasin to say more water.

Lawns do not need daily watering

Lawns do not require daily watering, even in the summertime. Watering grass only once every three days encourages deeper root growth, makes it healthier and more water-efficient. Water the grass early in the morning or in the evening.

Make use of a compost bin

Because in-sink garbage disposal requires a lot of water to function properly, consider using a compost bin instead. Or you can also make some DIY solutions for sink waste. It's better for the environment while also decreasing water waste and keeping your kitchen clean.

Wrap pipes in insulation

Insulate exposed pipes throughout the house, particularly in the attic and basement. It takes longer for water to heat up when they aren't insulated, which means it is running for extended periods. You can also speed up the process by covering the water heater with an insulating blanket.

Put RO residual water to good use

The water discharged from RO can be collected and reused without major efforts. This water can be easily used for cleaning your porch or backyard and giving your taps an occasional cleanup. However, do not use it for skin and hair.
