There are 7 ways that I want to recommend you about how to save water.
-Don't flush the toilet every time you use it - as the saying goes: "If it's yellow let it mellow; if it's brown flush it down".
-Install a dual-flush toilet - then if necessary you can use short flushs for a pee and a longer flush for the rest.
-Put a suitable container in your toilet cistern - this could be a brick or plastic container or so-called hippo and it will restrict the amount of water used with each flush.
-Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth - a running tap uses more water than necessary.
-Take a shower instead of a bath - a conventional shower (as opposed to a power shower) uses around two-thirds less water than a bath.
-Don't use more water than you need to boil the kettle - if you're only making one or two cups of tea/coffee, you simply don't need to fill the kettle.
-Keep a jug of water in the fridge - then, when you want really cold water, you don't have to run the tap to get it.

There are five tips on saving water at home:
- Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
- Take a shorter shower. Shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute.
- Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day.
- Install a water butt to your drainpipe and use the water collected to water your plants, clean your car and wash your windows.
- Water your garden with a watering can rather than a hosepipe.

Water is really important for our life. Nowadays the source of pure water are mostly damage from human technology and chemical. So we have to conserve water. You can do it by fallow these way.

1. Check faucets and pipes for leaks
A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 20 gallons of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of gallons.

2. Don't use the toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket
Every time you flush a cigarette butt, facial tissue or other small bit of trash, five to seven gallons of water is wasted.

3. Check your toilets for leaks
Put a little food coloring in your toilet tank. If, without flushing, the color begins to appear in the bowl within 30 minutes, you have a leak that should be repaired immediately. Most replacement parts are inexpensive and easy to install.

4. Use your water meter to check for hidden water leaks
Read the house water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak.

5. Install water-saving shower heads and low-flow faucet aerators
Inexpensive water-saving low-flow shower heads or restrictors are easy for the homeowner to install. Also, long, hot showers can use five to ten gallons every unneeded minute. Limit your showers to the time it takes to soap up, wash down and rinse off. "Low-flow" means it uses less than 2.5 gallons per minute.
You can easily install a ShowerStart showerhead, or add a ShowerStart converter to existing showerheads, which automatically pauses a running shower once it gets warm.
Also, all household faucets should be fit with aerators. This single best home water conservation method is also the cheapest!

6. Put plastic bottles or float booster in your toilet tank
To cut down on water waste, put an inch or two of sand or pebbles inside each of two plastic bottles to weigh them down. Fill the bottles with water, screw the lids on, and put them in your toilet tank, safely away from the operating mechanisms. Or, buy an inexpensive tank bank or float booster. This may save ten or more gallons of water per day.
