Water- and Energy-Saving Mechanisms

Domestic water conservation technologies can be used effectively in many kinds of residential, institutional, and commercial buildings to help conserve water. They are especially helpful in areas where water use has been restricted because of scarce or dwindling supplies. However, these technologies can be used anywhere in almost any kind of building.

Domestic appliances such as water-saving dishwashers and clothes washers can also be cost-effective
