We’ve previously written a blog on some basic tips on how to save water and money for your household/business.
We thought that it would be even better to quantify ways for your household to save water. You can actually see how much of a difference you are making – to your wallet and to the environment! All of the estimated water savings are given in household buckets – approximately 9L in volume.
