Water-Saving Tips for Laundry

Water reuse is another area where water savings can be recognized. EkoSource has information relating to re-usable water fit for purpose and designs for DIY grey water recycling systems. EkoSource is able to provide a number of greywater recycling systems which can be used to provide gardening water and water to flush your toilets, thereby reducing your water bill substantially.  


When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.


When buying a washer, check the Consortium for Energy Efficiency website to compare water use between models.


Washing dark clothes in cold water saves water and energy, and helps your clothes retain their colour.


When shopping for a new washing machine, compare resource savings among Energy Star models. Some can save up to 20 gallons of water per load.


Have a plumber re-route your greywater to trees and plants rather than the sewer line. Please remember to check with your municipal by laws.
