  • 1. Water identities HOW NORWEGIANS CAN SAVE WATER
  • 2. 1.Quick showers A standard shower uses 16 liters of water per minute. Think about how much water you save by stand five minutes less in the shower! 2. Showers instead of baths If you take a shower instead of having a bath you can save 90 liters of water. 3. Turn off the water while shampooing your hair By turning off the water while soaping up and shampooing your hair, you can save thirty liters or more every time you shower. 4. Install a shaving shower A water-saving system uses about half as much water as a normal shower. All you have to do is replace the shower head.
  • 3. 5. Turn off the water when brushing your teeth Turning off the water while brushing your teeth is a simple measure to conserve water. It often goes with over twenty liters of water on a teeth cleaning if you let the water run constantly. 6. Only rinse when necessary A dishwasher uses about seven liters a wash if you use a saving program. That is just as much as you use when you let the water run for a minute while you wash the dishes. You can wipe off the leftover food with a tissue and throw it in garbage. Then you won't clog the tubes because of the fat, and it also saves water.
  • 4. 7. Fill the basin You use more water if you wash up by hand than starting the machine. If you do not have a dishwasher, it is wise to fill the sink with water instead of washing up while the water is running. 8. Use a watering can Your lawn can do without water. If you drop the sprinkler, you save about 270 gallons each time you water. If you water the flowers, it is wise to use a pot. If you are really clever, you can collect rainwater and irrigate with this.
  • 5. 9. Wash your car in a car wash You use less water if you wash your car in the car wash than if you do it by hand. If you wash your car in the car wash, the water is also cleaned of heavy metals and oil before being discharged in the sewerage network.
  • 6. 10. Buy a saving toilet Toilets with saving buttons use half as much water as conventional toilets. Also make sure that your toilet is not draining or soar as leaks leading to a higher water consumption.
