We waste water in our homes in many ways. When washing clothes why not use the minimum load cycle! It still gets my clothes clean. Also grey water, from the bath/shower. This can be used if tapped from down pipes, to water gardens , water house plants, clean cars, clean the drive etc. When cleaning teeth turn the tap off. Run water into a sink to wash hands not wash under a running tap. If you don't have a double flush toilet put a brick into cistern then it will fill with less water. When running water to fill sink, bath, shower etc catch the cold into a jug or bucket, this can then be used to wash floors, clean the bath/sink, rinse cars, drive, paths or water the plants. Fill the dish washer completely before turning on. If only a few dishes wash by hand. Only fill a kettle with just enough water to make what you want. This saves water (evaporation) and fuel. I am the educational officer for an Eco Park where we teach children in school about ecology. Our toilets on the park are flushed by grey water, we have huge water tanks in the ground that collect rain water to flush the loo's! Water for the sinks is heated by solar panels .(it gets very, very hot!) Our air conditioning is water troughs outside of low windows (ground level). When it gets hot we open low windows on one side of building. The high windows on the other side of the building are opened. Hot air flows over the water troughs, enters the building as COOL air and the hot air leaves by the high windows, it really works. I hope this helps. There are some excellent ideas that really work, and it's time we all started using them. Good luck with your assignment.

Originally Answered: Pros and cons of bottled water- what are the main differences (if any) between bottled water and regular water
Is bottled water really better than tap?
By Megan Rauscher

Bottled water is not necessarily healthier or safer than tap water, Tampa, Florida-based sports nutritionist Cynthia Sass told the American College of Sports Medicine 11th annual Health & Fitness Summit in Dallas.
Twenty-five percent of all bottled water is actually repackaged tap water, according to Sass.
"Bottled water doesn't deserve the nutritional halo that most people give it for being pure," she says. "If you're not an exclusive bottled water drinker, you may find it worthwhile to check into filtering your tap water to save money."
In a recent Gallop survey, most consumers said they drink bottled water because they perceive it to be purer than tap water. Taste and convenience are also factors.
Because bottled water is considered a food, it is regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration. Tap water is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Both types of water are subject to testing for contaminates.
But Sass points out that an estimated 60 to 70 percent of all bottled water in the U.S. is packaged and sold within the same state, which exempts it from FDA regulation. And 1 in 5 states do not regulate that bottled water.
Moreover, tests on 1,000 bottles of 103 different brands of bottled water found man-made chemicals, bacteria and arsenic in 22 percent of the bottles.
Tap water is also not immune to contamination problems. While most cities meet the standards for tap water, some tap water in the 19 U.S. cities tested was found to contain arsenic, lead, and pesticides, Sass told the conference.
While most healthy adults can tolerate exposure to trace amounts of these contaminates, some people, such as cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, individuals who are HIV positive or recovering from a transplant or major surgery, pregnant women, children, and the elderly, are more vulnerable.
For these individuals, Sass favors bottled water treated with reverse osmosis, distilled water or city tap water with a filtering system certified by the National Sanitation Foundation.
As for the fitness water craze, skip it, Sass says, noting that fitness and specialty waters with not give an athlete an advantage or edge. In fact, vitamin-fortified waters may pose a risk for over-supplementation.
"Think of your one-a-day vitamin," says Sass. "Some of these waters are multi-vitamins in a bottle, so read the label and compare with the rest of your daily intake, including food," she advises.
Do you homework on yahoo answers..... The new world. Depends on the waste water. A public waste water plant, which is probably what your instructor has in mind gets water that has trash in it. So we will assume public plant, make sure to note that in your introduction. First, remove trash, which is toys, tin cans and so on. People flush anything and everything down the drain. Then remove solids. Think in terms of stuff that belongs in the sewer, and this includes paper products. Then remove suspended (dissolved) stuff. Then filter, and finally it's back to just water again. This is rather simplified, but if you're a kid in public school, they don't expect a PhD dissertation. What might be more interesting to the teacher, and perhaps worth an A, is what they do with the solids. The organic solids, you know, the stuff that really belongs in the sewer, gets turned into fertilizer in many places, is dried and bagged for sale, or pumped into trucks as a slurry (loose mud) to be applied to farm fields as fertilizer. Look up a brand name called Metro Grow. Keep your paper as simple as possible. Introduction paragraph, a few detail paragraphs, then a conclusion. Write the intro and conclusion first, then fill in between to get the length it's supposed to be, 2 pages for instance. Write it today. Read it again tonight, edit it. Read it again tomorrow twice. Edit it each time. You will get a good grade. Read it, edit it, only takes 15 minutes, and it the difference between a C and an A. You should spend a total of about 2.5 hours in 4 sittings to write this. IF YOUR TEACHER suggests you bought this paper or otherwise cheated, because all of a sudden it's good, and you don't write good papers, you will say: My tutor coached me on your expectations, and my tutor was right, wasn't she? The teacher will say I guess so, and give you the good grade you will deserve.

The number 1 waste of water is in your toilet. The flapper valve gets old and starts leaking, the leak goes right down the drain and the consumer never knows it. The flapper valve is the rubber plunger that makes the toilet flush. If you rub it with your fingers and your fingers get dirty, then your flapper valve is rotting out. It is the biggest case of wasted water in America period.

Originally Answered: Can the water temperature on a stationary (not portable) water pressure machine be instantly changed?
Sorry to hear about your burns. How these burners are rated is by how much they are able to increase the temperature of the incoming water, so it is not quite like a faucet that you can just turn the cold water off. It would be possible to change the temperature on some machines, but some of the burners will simply have an on/off switch like the mechanic had said. What does happen with these machines pretty often, though, is that when they are left on but no water is allowed to come out, the pump cycles the same water over and over. This causes the temperature of the water to rise due to friction. You can actually feel a temperature increase on the manifold after only 20-30 seconds. If this was the case, the water would have cooled off, though, as the hot water was discharged and the manifold was cooled. There are electric units that have what is called auto start/stop. With this technology, the machine will actually be shut off when the trigger is released and turned on when it is pulled. They really should have this type of setup, but it can cost a little more money. At these terminals, it is probably easier for them to just have a gas or diesel fired engine. Next time you are there, check out what type of machine they have. I'll include in my sources a link to a forum page on how to fix burners which will show that both the fixed and adjustable thermostat are out there. It is just impossible to know whether that particular machine has a fixed thermostat or not without looking at it. Hope this helps.
