Are you aware of how much water you and your family use a month?

I don’t really know too, except for the bills we pay each month..

But I must say we’re pretty good at conserving water because my mom actually practices quite a bit of water conservation acts at home


The above is a pie chart showing the breakdown of water usage for each activity in a typical household.

So I guess the biggest contributors of an average family’s monthly water consumption are showering and washing in the kitchen. By shortening the duration of water usage, people can save 9 litres of water per minute in the shower and 8 litres of water per minute in the kitchen sink.


I don’t think I need to reiterate this but, water is precious to every living thing on earth and more so for Singaporeans because we used to face water shortage issues in the past!

We’ve been encouraged since young to conserve water and that every little drop counts.

& here are some ways of how I conserve water at home!

My mom and I only do our laundry only when the load is full.
This way, we do not waste that huge amount of water just for a few pieces of clothing and this definitely is one way to save water!
Instead of letting the tap run, I use a tumblr when brushing my teeth.

This is another easy way to minimize the usage of water.

The next way of conserving water is to turn off the tap when washing dishes!
The same theory applies when soaping your hands or body when taking a bath, always always ALWAYS turns off the tap or shower.

& the last effort is something new that I’ve just learned from PUB’s website:
Which is to water the plants in the early morning or late evening to minimize evaporation losses!
I never knew that this is also an easy way to help save water!

If you have other ways of conserving water, do share them with me because I would love to help the earth as well as pay less for my monthly water bills! Haha.

Today, Singapore has built a robust, diversified and sustainable water supply from four different sources known as the Four National Taps. More than 5 million people enjoy clean, safe water at a turn of a tap. Now that we have sustainable water supply, we should not take it for granted and still continue putting in effort to conserve water!
Hope you’ve learn some useful & easy tips of saving water!
