I didn't know that water drained out of our air-conditioners is pure. Is that drinkable, Mr Sriraj ? Even if it isn't, that water has many other uses.Mr Sriraj's post prompted me to have a fresh look at our Clubhouse AC units with an eye on conservation.
I counted 12 AC units that account for as many buckets of water,if not more.The clubhouse ACs can all be connected to a core pipe for water collection. Mr Sriraj's idea for conserving AC water ought to set us thinking about carrying out a household water consumption audit.
How about drafting a check-list of possible points of water leakage/wastage in our households.Besides, we could think of conservation by changing some of our ways. For
instance, some of us keep the sink water running while brushing teeth. Using a mug, instead of washing face in running water,can save water.
When Mantri community gets going, we can persuade school students in our complex to volunteer for household water audit on weekends or during vacation.Volunteers can run through the water audit check-list at their own flats, and also those of their neighbours, and report to PropCare any plumbing or other repair work that might be needed to check leakage.The student volunteers can also suggest steps residents can take to conserve water.
