By Jennifer Cogan for Bloomberg NewsWater conservation animation, in which a water tank shows how to use the water to build a house, can be done with just a little water.
Water conservation is a growing market, with more than 60 countries making it a requirement in their environmental laws.
In China, for example, households are required to buy water conservation equipment to make their water safe and hygienic.
The water tank can be used to make a water garden, a small greenhouse, a garden, and even a small water tank for your pet.
“Water conservation could be the next big market,” said Pauline Chabris, chief executive of the Water Conservation Institute in London.
The U.K.’s water conservation policy was recently updated and requires households to use a water conservation system, a mandatory system that includes an integrated water tank.
According to WaterUK, this year, more than 70% of households will need to have water conservation devices.
But what is the most effective way to conserve water?
Water is the cheapest form of energy, and water is cheap to produce, meaning that it is often cheaper than solar energy, wind power, or even batteries for energy storage.
To keep up with the growing demand for water, the U.S. and other countries are spending millions of dollars on water conservation initiatives, including a $3.5 billion investment in water technology and the $8.7 billion investment of the Global Water Alliance in 2018.
At the end of 2017, the World Bank forecast that global water demand would reach a total of 7,813 trillion cubic feet of water.
The average household will use 6,857 billion cubic feet, or about one-third of the total, according to the report.
For homes that do not have water tanks, the biggest expense will be the cost of installing and maintaining the water tank, Chabrs said.
While water conservation is still a new idea, the growing market has already attracted attention, and many are hoping that a water saving animation will help homeowners make the most of their water.
“It’s a little bit of fun, and hopefully it’ll make people more aware that water conservation can be a good option,” Chabrus said.
