GUIDEBOOK ON WATER CONSERVATION IN APARTMENTSby Natasha Manual Digital Marketing Specialist
High rise buildings, with more of 3 bhk apartments in Ernakulam, face a severe shortage of water. Builders and apartment owners are constantly in search of ways to reduce the consumption of water.
There are apartments in Maradu which have adopted most of the water conservation methods listed below.
Rainwater harvesting entails collecting the rainwater falling on rooftops. They can be directed into groundwater wells or can be filtered and supplied to the apartments for use.
2. Re-use of water
Wastewater from the bathrooms, toilet and kitchen sinks, showers, washing machines can be collected and re-used for toilet flushing and gardening purposes.
3. Water-saving gadgets
Adapters fitted on to taps and faucets control the flow of water through them, minimizing usage by half.
Installing tippy taps which dispense limited quantities of water for washing hands each time it is opened reduces wastage.
4. Repair of leaky faucets
Timely repair of the leaks in faucets, pipes, and taps prevent loss of hundreds of gallons of water.
5. Dual flush toilet tanks
The two buttons on the tank release different quantities of water as per requirements minimizing wastage of water.
Installing low-flow showerheads reduces the quantity of water showered. Automatic valve systems that stop the flow of water after a pre-calculated optimal showering time control the usage of water.
7. Washing machine
Fewer the wash cycles, lesser the water used. It would be advisable to load the machine to its maximum capacity for each wash instead of washing a few clothes several times.
Kitchen is one place where water is used in plenty. Utensils can be washed by soaking them in a water-filled sink and vegetables can be washed in vessels rather than holding under an open tap.
