نصائح للحفاظ على الماء باللغة الانجليزية

الماء مورد محدود. ما يفعله كل واحد منا في العالم ، وكيف نعيش ، يحدث فرقا. بينما نتعلم قيمة المياه النظيفة والآمنة ومدى ندرة هذه المياه حقًا ، يمكننا اتخاذ خطوات لحمايتها وإيصالها إلى الأشخاص الذين لا يستطيعون الوصول إليها اليوم.

Water is a limited resource. What each of us does in the world, how we live, does make a difference. As we learn the value of clean, safe water and how scarce it truly is, we can take steps to protect it and to get it to people who lack access today.

Next to air, water is the most important element for the preservation of life. Water is a finite commodity which, if not managed properly, will result in shortages in the near future. Water conservation can go a long way to help alleviate these impending shortages.

1. Check your toilet for leaks. 

Put a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If, without flushing, the coloring begins to appear in the bowl., you have a leak that may be wasting more than 100 gallons of water a day.

2. Stop using your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket

Every cigarette butt or tissue you flush away also flushes away five to seven gallons of water.

3. Put a plastic bottle in your toilet tank

Put an inch or two of sand or pebbles in the bottom of a one liter bottle to weigh it down.

Fill the rest of the bottle with water and put it in your toilet tank, safely away from the operating mechanism.

In an average home, the bottle may save five gallons or more of water every day without harming the efficiency of the toilet. If your tank is big enough, you may even be able to put in two bottles.

4. Take shorter showers

A typical shower uses five to ten gallons of water a minute. Limit your showers to the time it takes to soap up, wash down and rise off.

5. Install water-saving shower heads or flow restrictors

Your hardware or plumbing supply store stocks inexpensive shower heads or flow restrictors that will cut your shower flow to about three gallons a minute instead of five to ten. They are easy to install, and your showers will still be cleansing and refreshing.

6. Take baths

A partially filled tub uses less water than all but the shortest showers.

7. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth

Before brushing, wet your brush and fill a glass for rinsing your mouth.

8. Turn off the water while shaving

Fill the bottom of the sink with a few inches of warm water in which to rinse your razor.

9. Check faucets and pipes for leaks

Even a small drip can waste 50 or more gallons of water a day.

10. Use your automatic dishwasher for full loads only

Every time you run your dishwasher, you use about 25 gallons of water.

11. Use your automatic washing machine only for full loads only

Your automatic washer uses 30 to 35 gallons per cycle.

12. Don’t let the faucet run while you clean vegetables

Rinse your vegetables instead in a bowl or sink full of clean water.

13. Keep a bottle of drinking water in the refrigerator

This puts a stop to the wasteful practice of running tap water to cool it for drinking.

14. If you wash dishes by hand, don’t leave the water running for rinsing

If you have two sinks, fill one with rinse water. If you have only one sink, first gather all your washed dishes in a dish rack, then rinse them quickly with a spray device or a pan of water.

15. Check faucets and pipes for leaks

Leaks waste water 24 hours a day, seven days a week. An inexpensive washer is usually enough to stop them.

16. Water your lawn only when it needs it

Watering on a regular schedule doesn’t allow for cool spells or rainfall, which reduces the need for watering. Step on some grass. If it springs back up when you move your foot, it doesn’t need water.

17. Deep-soak your lawn

When you do water your lawn, water it long enough for water to seep down to the roots where it is needed. A light sprinkling that sits on the surface will simply evaporate and be wasted.

18. Water during the cool parts of the day

Early morning is better than dusk since it helps prevent the growth of fungi.

19. Don’t water the gutter

Position your sprinklers so that water lands on your lawn or garden, not in areas where it does no good. Also, avoid watering on windy days when much of your water may be carried off to the streets and sidewalks.

20. Plant drought-resistant trees and plants

Many beautiful trees and plants thrive without irrigation.

21. Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants.

Much slows the evaporation of moisture.

22. Use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and steps

Using a hose wastes hundreds and hundreds of gallons of water.

Water saving tips
There are many ways that you can save water around your home. You may find the following tips helpful.

Use a bowl in the sink when washing fruit, vegetables and dishes. You can then use the waste water to water your plants.
Fill a jug of water and put it in the fridge for when you want a cool drink.

Turn off the tap when you clean your teeth.

Always turn taps off tightly so they do not drip.

Promptly repair any leaks in and around your taps. (One leak can waste several thousand litres of water per year.)

Use an aerator and/or a water flow-reducer attachment on your tap to reduce your water usage.

When hand-washing dishes, never run water continuously.

Wash dishes in a partially filled sink and then rinse them using the spray attachment on your tap.

If you have an electric dishwasher, use it only to wash full loads, and use the shortest cycle possible.

Many dishwashers have a conserver/water-miser cycle.

When brushing your teeth, turn the water off while you are actually brushing.

Use short bursts of water for cleaning your brush. (This saves about 80% of the water normally used.)

When washing or shaving, partially fill the sink and use that water rather than running the tap continuously. (This saves about 60% of the water normally used.)

Use short bursts of water to clean razors.

Use either low-flow shower heads or adjustable flow-reducer devices on your shower heads. (They reduce flow by at least 25%.)

You can reduce water usage by 40% to 50% by installing low-flush toilets.

Wash only full loads in your washing machine.

Use the shortest cycle possible for washing clothes, and use the “suds-saver” feature if your machine has one.

Use only cleaning products that will not harm the environment when they are washed away after use. Look for “environmentally friendly” products when shopping.

Lawns and gardens require only 5 millimetres of water per day during warm weather. Less is needed during spring, fall, or cool weather.

Water lawns every three to five days, rather than for a short period every day. In warm weather, apply 5 millimetres of water for each day since the last watering.
