WATER CONSERVATI­ON TIPS

-

Use salt water when possible, for washing clothes, dishes or taking showers (right). If wanting a post-shower freshwater rinse, ration the water. Fitting saltwater taps in the galley and heads can really help.

Turn the pressure down on freshwater pumps – or only switch them on when necessary.

Only carry bottled water for emergency use and keep some in a tank in reserve.

Rationing water from a day tank to reusable bottles is prudent and a good way to measure your fluid intake.

If running hot water, collect the cold while waiting for it to heat up.
