Water is one of the most valuable resources of the worlds and we must try to conserve it. It will help to preserve our environment. Most people may wonder why we should conserve water when near about three-fourth or 71% of the earth is covered by water. But, the fact is that the 97% of the water is saline water which is neither suitable for drinking purpose nor suitable for other daily uses. Only 3% of water is fresh water and 1% is available for drinking and daily use purpose. Not only that, if you reduce the daily usage of the water, it will help to reduce your water bill, too. Reduced water bill means, you are saving money in this way. A few simple initiatives at home may help you to stop wastage of water.

Fix Leaky Faucet:
The leaky faucet is another common problem through which wastage of water happens in maximum households.
