1. Fix minor leaks around your home.

修補家中滴漏的水管

Replace damaged pipes and leaky faucets to avoid wasting water. Inspect your water meter and utility bills every month to see how much water you're using. If you notice a random spike, it may be a sign that you have a leaky pipe somewhere in your home. A poorly-sealed pipe or leaky toilet can waste up to 340 L of water a day, so resolving these problems can save a lot of water in the long run.

更換損壞的水管和漏水的水龍頭來避免浪費水。每月檢查你的水表和水費賬單,查看自己用了多少水。如果你發現水費突然增加,可能意味著你家里的某個水管在漏水。漏水的水管或馬桶一天可浪費多達340升的水,所以解決這些問題從長遠來看可以節省很多水。

2. Turn the faucet off while you brush or shave.

刷牙或刮臉的時候關掉水龍頭

This is one of the easiest ways to cut back on your water usage. There's no need to keep the water running while you're in the process of cleaning your teeth or trimming your beard. It may sound hard to believe, but you can save roughly 760 L of water a month just by shutting the water off once you go about your business!

這是最容易的節水方法之一。在刷牙或剃須時沒必要讓水一直流?;蛟S聽上去難以置信,但是只要你每次不用水就馬上關掉水龍頭,一個月就能節省約760升的水。

3. Take shorter showers.

縮短洗澡時間

Get into the habit of taking showers that last 5 minutes or less whenever you can. Everyone loves a long, hot shower, but your showerhead uses roughly 7.6 L of water a minute. You'll save a lot of water over time if you stick with short rinses, and you'll be just as squeaky clean as you normally would after a long shower.

養成每次洗澡不超過5分鐘的習慣。大家都喜歡洗長時間的熱水浴,但是淋浴噴頭每分鐘就會噴出約7.6升水。如果你堅持短時間淋浴,時間長了你會節省很多水,而且你的身體會和長時間淋浴后一樣干凈。

4. Switch to water-saving fixtures.

將噴頭和水龍頭換成節水裝置

Swap out your showerhead and faucets for low-flow alternatives. By upgrading your showerhead and sink fixtures, you'll cut back dramatically on your water usage. This is an easy way to conserve water without even changing the way you wash, flush, or shower!

將你的淋浴噴頭或水龍頭換成節水裝置。通過升級你的噴頭和水龍頭,你可以極大地節省用水量。這種節水方法很輕松,你甚至不用改變洗漱、沖馬桶或淋浴的方式!

5. Run your dishwasher and washing machine only when it's full.

洗碗機和洗衣機填滿了才運轉

Using household appliances more effectively is a great way to save water. There's nothing wrong with trying to keep your kitchen clean, but you're going through a lot of water if you're in the habit of running your dishwasher every day. By waiting until the dishwasher is full, you're getting the most bang for your buck when it comes to the water you're using. And always make sure that you have enough dirty clothing for a full load.

更高效地使用家用電器也是節水的一個妙招。保持廚房干凈沒有錯,但是如果你天天用洗碗機就會用掉很多水。如果你在洗碗機裝滿時才運轉,你就能最大化地利用水資源。同樣,洗衣機運轉的時候要保證里面塞滿了臟衣服。

6. Use water-efficient appliances.

使用節水家電

The next time you need to replace a dishwasher, washing machine, or water heater, purchase a water-efficient appliance. Not only will this cut back on your water consumption, but you'll save money over time when it comes to utility costs.

下一次你需要更換洗碗機、洗衣機或熱水器時,要購買節水電器。不只是因為這樣能省水,而且長遠來看還能省下不少生活費用。

7. Avoid washing your car or use a bucket.

盡量少洗車,或者用水桶打水洗車

Put the hose down and let the rain clean your car for you. If you do feel the need to wash your vehicle, fill a few buckets instead of using your garden hose to clean your vehicle off and rinse it. If you use a hose to wash your vehicle, you'll use roughly 190 L of water. A few buckets will only require 19–38 L, though.

放下水管,讓雨水幫你洗車吧。如果確實覺得有必要洗車了,打幾桶水來擦洗車子,而不是用花園澆水用的水管來沖洗。如果用水管洗車,每次將用掉約190升的水,而打幾桶水只要19到38升。
