Something's We Use Water For • Bathing • Cleaning food, toys, dishes etc. • We know we all like to have nice long hot showers but maybe we could have a nice quick hot shower. • Watering the garden • Water toys, water guns, balloons etc.
Where Our Water Goes Our water goes into our some kind of draining system depending where you live.If you live in a City it will go underground to a water filtrations center.If you live on a farm it will go into you SEPTIC TANK or a LAGOON, when your septic tank gets to full it has to be emptied or else that would be very gross!! How Our Septic Tank works.
How to Slow the Flow of water. When washing clothes we all like our black clothes the blackest they can be so start washing them in cold water it saves money and water. When brushing your teeth turn off the water when you have the water in your mouth it saves about 1000 gallons of water a month WOW!! If those of you have fish that’s a lot of water that is about 50 fish aquarium's.
