    I save my wash water to put down the toilet and use the rinse water for the next wash. My dishwasher only uses 9litres of water. Other brands use 23..I live on my own but still feel it’s important to continue to be careful of my water use !

    First of all, stupid UK, change the taps! Do not separate the hot and cold water taps so you don't burn your hands unnecessarily or do the washing up in cold water.

    The foot operated water tap is the best water saver for daily used basin. But it is expensive and complicated for ordinary use. But I have modified a low price, about 20 to 30 cents per tap cost and easily DIY type.

    I love this. I can't wait to implement water saving techniques when I move back to the US. Currently a PCV and between my wife and I, we use less than 1500 liters of water a month. Living in a water scarce community has made me value it so much.
