First of all, go around your home and observe or write down where you are using water. List them by amount of water used, from the one that uses more to the one that uses less water.

Here is a list of things that you can do at home to start saving water. In general look at all the taps that are leaking at home. You may be wasting a huge amount of water. Have them repaired or repair them yourself. It is normally due to an old rubber seal that is easily and economically replaced. You can test if there are any leaks by controlling the water meter for an hour or two, when there is no water used at home. If the meters give a different reading, there is a leak at home.
