Being aware of your indoor water usage and changing the rate and manner in which it is used can save you money and have a positive impact on the community.

5 activities that will save water, and your money

Fix Those Leaks

  • A running toilet can use 200 gallons of water/day or more..
  • Don't ignore a dripping faucet. That drip can add up to a lot of wasted water.

Upgrade to Water Saving Appliances

  • Install a WaterSense showerhead.
  • Replace an old toilet with an WaterSense toilet.
  • Switch to Energy Star certified clothes washers and dish washers that use less water and run more efficiently.

Don't Let the Water Run

  • Don't leave the water running when you're not using it. Turn it off while you're brushing your teeth, shaving, scrubbing dishes, or other activities.
  • Install an aerator in your faucet to help limit the flow of water without reducing pressure.

Full Loads Only

If you have a dish or clothes washer, only run them when there's a full load. This saves water and energy.

Insulate to Save

Insulate exposed hot water pipes so you don't have to run the water as long for it to get hot.
