Back again on some more tips on how to consume less water. Last time we mentioned how the first step to consuming less water comes from ourselves. Before we actually can save water, we need to make a decision to do so. Anyway, here are some more tips on how to save water, reduce your water bill and also contribute to making our nation a little greener.
This week we will talk about some key ways to save water in the kitchen, by using the right kitchen plumbing
Rather than letting the tap flow as we rinse off the dishes in the sink, get a double kitchen sink installed. This type of setup is used for washing and rinsing your dishes. One can be filled up with dish water and the other with detergent free water.
Dishwashers normally will use less water than washing dishes by hand. These days, modern dishwashers are very efficient on water. So chat with your local plumber in Calgary. Your plumber will be able to advise you on the most efficient dishwasher and will be able to install it for you.
Avoid leaving your dishes in your dishwasher for prolonged periods of time and just rinse cycling them. The best bet is to rinse them once in the sink and then run your dishwasher through a cleaning cycle.
Rather than using a new glass every time you want a drink of water, just have one glass set aside that can be used repeatedly throughout the day. Another good idea is to have a designated drinking bottle that you can also repeatedly full.
Running water to thaw food is a definite no-no. Best to leave the food in sealed plastic bags and thaw it out slowly and naturally in the fridge or in a sink full of water.
Well, that’s it for this time. These ways to reduce water consumption are often overlooked but are very simplistic and sensical. So please be mindful and try out the ideas I have mentioned. Please don’t hesitate to email or call me if you need any help.
