Recently at a water show in San Francisco, the ShowerStart shower head caught my eyes. This is how it works: You turn on the water and there is cold water. The cold water keeps running until the water temperature reaches 95 degree F. The showerhead adapter senses the temperature and slows to a trickle until you are ready to get in the shower. And you pull the cord and the shower will return to full pressure. It saves energy and hot water for people who makes coffee or read their newspaper while waiting for hot water to take a shower. The cold water still going down the drain. But it's easy to use with no change of behavior.

Instead of the water going down the drain, I catch the cold shower water and use it to fill up the bird-bath every day. It's so satisfying to see the birds having fun flapping their wings and splash water all over the area.

Greywater is another way of saving water. I just attended a workshop on how to reuse the laundry water for the garden. Since the washing machine already has a pump, the water can be easily pump out and send water to the garden to water the trees or shrubs. Dig trenches and make sure to keep the pumped water underground to water the trees or shrubs. The greywater can be used to water the vegetable garden as long as the greywater does not touch the edible part.

Check your water company's website for rebates on water conservation devices or products, such as water saving toilets, low flow faucets, turn your thirsty lawn into a native garden. On average, a household uses 10% of water for showers, and 25% to flush the toilets. Over 60% of water is being used on landscaping. Sheet mulching is one of the easiest way to remove your lawn and plant native plants. See slides on this site. http://greenremodelforum.com/grf/saving ... -mulching/

How about rain water harvesting! Use wood/plastic barrels catch rain water through the downspouts. You can use the water to do laundry, water garden and flush toilets.

Yes. You can introduce graywater and downpour water gathering and you can spare a considerable measure of water. I like graywater more on the grounds that everyone has graywater consistently. The pipes work may be less complex. For downpour water reaping, we don't have downpour water consistently and you need heaps of barrels to gather the water.

I think laundry water for the landscape is so much simple!
