Water Usage

Using your water wisely and efficiently is an extremely valuable skill to have. As water becomes more scarce, we must all take steps to use it effectively.  Wasting water is no longer an option, and even less so on a homestead, where every drop counts.

Knowing how much water you use, and learning to avoid wasting it, is key to any off-grid system. Only then can you calculate how much you need to collect and store.

Hand washing your laundry is a great way to save on water and energy, and it is very therapeutic. It is more time consuming than a machine, but not as much as you would think.

Using the sun to dry your clothes saves a lot of energy. This rotating clothesline has a lot of drying space in a small area.
