Water-saving technology for the home includes:

  • Low-flow shower heads (sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy, due to less water being heated).
  • Low-flush toilets, composting toilets and waterless urinals, which can have a dramatic impact in the developed world, as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water.
  • Faucet aerators, which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. As a bonus, they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes.
  • Wastewater reuse or recycling systems, allowing:
    • Reuse of graywater for flushing toilets or for the garden, and
    • Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant.
  • Waterless car wash
  • Rainwater harvesting
