General Tips

  • When purchasing a new electrical appliance, consider purchasing one with a high ESMA energy efficiency rating (5 or 4 stars).
  • Wash your car with a bucket of soapy water instead of using a hose or pipe.
  • Clean your outer courtyard with a broom instead of the water hose.
  • Cover your swimming pool to reduce water losses due to evaporation.
  • Conduct a leak test two times a year by switching off all water devices and checking the water meter. If the meter is still running, this indicates a water leak in the pipes or system.
