Save water! Yes, this isn’t mere a statement, it has a deep meaning. The core of this petition is to focus over the wastage of water by RO water plants and purifiers. Reverse Osmosis purifiers use membrane technology to purify water where we get only 25% as pure water and 75% water we get is rejected as it is waste water. That means if we use RO purifier to filter 100 Ltrs of water, we get 25 Ltrs purified water and the rest 75 Ltrs water is wasted, if we we purifiy 1000 Ltrs of water, the waste water accounts for 750 Ltrs, for 100000 Ltrs, the waste water is 75000 Ltrs. Yes you’ve got this right. The point is not to stop using RO purifiers which can have health issues in this era but to have a proper water conservation management system for the waste water water to be used judiciously. For instance, 75% waste water that we get while using RO purifiers can be used for washing clothes manually or in washing machines, doing the dishes, gardening, cleaning, coolers, construction purposes etc. We may look around and find that 90% of the waste water is not being conserved and simply wasted.
In view of the above, my humble request is to conserve waste water from RO purifiers and use it judiciously for various other purposes. Moreover, to emphasise over its importance, Government may frame rules which will abide people to conserve this 75% of water and use it for purposes other than drinking while using RO purifiers.
Please! Please! Please!
Save water! Save environment! Save our Mother Nature!
