Are you conscious of how much water you use?

Do you have long showers, large baths, or do you not worry about how much water you are using?

I do to a small degree only.

I know someone who puts a bucket in the shower to catch the cold water before she gets in -I do not do anything like that but I DO turn it off while soaping my hands, and brushing my teeth.

I am conscious of the water however would not really cut a shower short due to wanting to save water.

I also think I waste a lot in the kitchen even though I dont rinse a lot before putting in the Dishwasher as Miele told me there is no point as it defeats the purpose of the dishwasher.

Yes, I am very conscious of how much water I use. I shave and brush my teeth with the water turned off, and I have a four minute timer in my shower.

Good question!

Yes,always,despite living in the tropics where we seem to have PLENTY of water. As a kid in 1967 I went through a dreadful drought in Melbourne during which each household would fill the bathtub and this was all the water the whole family had until the next day! For all uses you can think of!! I STILL turn off the tap when cleaning my teeth!!!
Not really. I shower everyday and have a hot bath most evenings as well.
oh tracie -you r a clean one!

Yes I always have it in mind and always telling a friend off when she leaves the kitchen tap on whilst walking around the kitchen talking and doesn't hurry up!

I'm not as water conscious as I should be
by AJ
Yes, yes, yes.
I do what I can comfortably. I'm NOT into 4 mins Showers! That's just stupid. I don't really believe one can PROPERLY clean oneself, including hair, in that time. I don't just stand without washing & it takes me 20 mins, including teeth brushing!

I switch off the water where I can. I use the dishwasher when it's full, same for clothes washer.
Am careful with electricity usage, too!
Yes, short showers, don't use the bath.
Me too! I hate wasting water. I wash up, with only about 3 inches of hot water only in the 2 sided sinks. I use the washing machine, (cold water only,) only when it's full enough, so the cloths can still move around with the soap powder, I haven't had a bath in years, I don't leave the tap running while cleaning my teeth. I have very short shows, & only need to wash my hair, once a week! And we collect rainwater & shower water in buckets to pour over the pot plants, Most off the rest of the garden looks after it's self, except for a few weeks at the hight of summer, when we do need to hose a couple of the plants properly!

I am water conscious as we use tank water for everything. We are in the fortunate position to have mains water connected to our home, but it is only used in emergencies. Since building our 100,000 litre rain water tank 9 years ago we have run out once after I accidentally left a sprinkler on when the timer failed.
My garden comes second regrettably, so if we are low on water it misses out.
