A few interesting comments regarding water consumption and general hints
Taking a bath consumes an enormous amount of water. Rather use less water or take a brief shower. Low-flow shower heads, which also save water, are available at certain hardware stores.
Leaking taps and toilets that do not shut down, can on the long run place a financial burden on the household. Tap washers should be replaced regularly and toilet and geyser leakages should be repaired immediately.
Residents with access to the readings on their water meters, can monitor daily consumption. The meter registers in kiloliter (1 000 liter) and water consumption can be monitored accurately by taking readings on a regular basis.
All indigent households get free sanitation (except where there are septic tanks).
