Water saving solutions for cleaning outdoor environments

To wash the floors in the garden or courtyard, avoid using drinking water and use rainwater. The rainwater recovery systems are accessible and inexpensive, they can integrate perfectly with the garden furniture and those with special needs can choose to bury more complex tanks with integrated filters.

Also use the recycled water to clean the car. Prefer dry cleaning or if you really can't do without water, do not use the hose with running water but use buckets containing soapy water. For rinsing, use a hose with a nozzle with a flow reducer to ensure maximum water savings.
