According to free flush, an average family of four uses the equivalent of two baths of water every day just flushing the toilet. The world economic forum predicts the gap between freshwater demand and supply will about 40% globally by 2030, if 'business as usual' continues.

The amount of water we used in daily usage is listed as:
30% - toilet flushing,
21% - personal washing,
13% - clothes washing,
12% - personal washing,
8%   - washing up,
7%   - outdoor,
5%   - Other,
4%  - Drinking.

The methods to save water and the total water saved in terms of the liter is illustrated. Turning of tap while brushing teeth saves 10,950 litres of water a year. short sharp showers save water around 80 liters. Fixing a dripping tap would save 5,500 liters of water a year.

Installing water efficient appliances would save 12 liters of water. We could save 180 megalitres a day enough to supply nearly 500,000 homes. if we are able to save just 10% water per household, that will be equivalent to filling water in the largest reservoir twice over.
