Water is a vital resource for life! This is a fact that all of us are aware of deep down, but, in many cases, this is not yet reflected in how we act. Changing our habits may prove decisive, as future shortages may just be around the corner. We have to think that we cannot survive without water and so we have to rationalise its use in a sustainable manner. This warning we give isn’t meant to alarm you, rather to warn you of the ways in which water is wasted, such as abundant watering, or even in domestic use.
Infralobo’s mission is to supply your home with the quality and quantity required. We strive every day to ensure that this reality can never be called into question, but we can’t help but emphasise how great a responsibility this is!
Our responsibility involves not only guaranteeing that every mechanism is of quality and in working order, but also that we should also develop sustainable consumption habits. So, let us share with you our policy on “How to Save Water”:
In the Kitchen:
- Only use dishwashers and washing machines with a full load;
- Don’t pour oil or fatty liquid down your sink. Pour them into an appropriate container and dispose of them later in the correct ecopoint;
- When cooking, favour steam, microwaves and pressure cookers, as this saves water, preserves vitamins and improves flavour.
In the Bathroom:
- Take showers instead of baths. While you lather up, don’t leave the water running;
- Replace your showerhead with a low-flow one (with aerator), which mixes water with air to maintain pressure and comfort. You can thus save up to 50% of water;
- Use dual flush toilet cisterns;
- Rinse with water from a glass when brushing your teeth, and turn off the tap when shaving;
- Turn off the tap when soaping yours hands;
In the Garden:
- Water your plants in the morning or at night;
- Optimise your irrigation system, placing plants with similar water needs together;
- Place plants that need more water in shady areas of the garden, stopping them from wilting;
- If you have a pool, try to exchange traditional filters for ones that save water;
- If you cover your pool at night or when not in use, you can reduce water loss through evaporation by 90% and keep the water clean;
- Choose native plants for your garden, and opt for alternative solutions to lawns, such as pine bark or pebbles.
In the Pool:

- If you cover your pool at night or when not in use, you can reduce water loss through evaporation by 90% and keep the water clean.
- Fit mixer taps;
- Always make sure taps are firmly shut, so as not to let water run or drip;
- Be wary of possible leaks in toilet cisterns;
- If you spot a leak in public areas (road or garden) tell Infralobo immediately;
- Checking your meter and bill regularly will help you detect any anomalies or major increases, and correct any incorrect behaviour.
