In the event of water crisis

To save water:

•  supply fittings with aerators to save water;
•  check for leaks. If, with all taps closed, the counter is running, call a specialized company that can check for •  faults or leaks in the pipe and plumbing fixtures;
•  do not let the tap water run unnecessarily; turn it on only when necessary, such as while brushing your teeth •  or while shaving your beard;
•  do not use running water to wash fruits and vegetables; simply let them soak with a pinch of baking soda;
•  whenever possible, reuse used water: water from cooking pasta, for example, to degrease dishes; water used to wash fruits and vegetables to water plants and flowers;
•  use washing machines or dishwashers, if possible at night, only when fully loaded, and remember to enter the economy program if there are few clothes or dishes to be washed;
•  in toilets, use two-flow tanks; it saves about 60% of the water currently used with fixed, high-volume tanks;
•  prefer showering to bathing: it is faster and reduces consumption by one-third;
•  when you go on vacation or are away from home for long periods, turn off the central water tap;
•  do not use drinking water to wash cars.

In case of suspension of water supply:

•  before the suspension, make a minimum supply of water for the bathroom and kitchen and stock up on disposable dishes, cutlery, and cups, absorbent cotton, and denatured alcohol;
•  turn off the electric water heater and turn it back on after the power is back on to avoid damage to the heating elements;
•  as soon as the water supply is restored, avoid using the washing machine, dishwasher, and water heater until the water heater is back to normal, as dark water may occur.
