We keep listening about water scarcity in India and if we continue with the same water consumption pattern, it is very likely possible the unavailability of drinking water in a few upcoming years.  The best ways to save water at your house are as follows:

1. Explore your house and examine all the water taps time to time. In case of any leakage, ask the technician to repair or replace the same with a new one.

2. Nowadays, it is very common to have water purifier (RO) at home and to get drinking water from RO, RO wastes so much water (to get 1 Ltr. Of drinking water, there is wastage of 2~3 ltr.). Collect this water and use that water for some other activities of your home like cleaning the floor, utensils, bath, and many more.
