If not in use then don’t waste

Water isn’t abundant. If you aren’t using any water then don’t waste it.

This would mean that if you are washing your face or even putting soap in your hands then you should turn off the sink because if you don’t then water will be wasted. Remember that every second you do other things while the water is running can accumulate to a glass of water being wasted. So if you aren’t using the water then don’t waste it.

Multitask when you shower

This would mean that if you are taking a shower why don’t you put shampoo and when that is done you put soap as well. This way when you are going to take a shower it will only be in one go since you already put shampoo on your hair and soap on your body. You wouldn’t be wasting water but rather saving it and you get to save time as well.

This way when you are about to use the bathroom water you wouldn’t be using it in a double usage, when using plus the leak. Fixing the leak would also save you and your home because the leak can get worse and cause more damage.
