saving water at home

Especially in southern Europe, water is scarce, that for the EU wants to converse  all households on to flow restricting products.
Germany is with a consumption of 129 liters per person/day compared with the main EU countries, far ahead in saving water. But there is further potential savings by installing e.g. water saving tap aerator or watersaving showerheads. It is worthwhile to compare the prices of various vendors!
Another aspect for energy-saving: less needlessly heated water flows into the drain.
