MONEY SAVING WATER CONSERVATION TIPS
Cook Smart. Peel and clean vegetables in a bowl of water instead of under running water.
Slow the Flow. Install a slow-flow faucet to reduce water consumption up to 50 percent.
Shorten Showers. Take short showers instead of baths, and consider using a shower timer. To make it fun for kids, turn it into a game to see who can get the most “sqeaky clean” in under three minutes!
Test Your Tank. Add 12 drops of food coloring to your toilet tank and wait an hour. Look to see if any color seeped through the tank, a fitting or into the toilet bowl. If so, you may have a leak.
Let It Grow. Raise your lawnmower blade to at least three inches; taller grass holds soil moisture better.
Sweep Up. Clean the driveway and sidewalk with a broom instead of a hose to save hundreds of gallons of water.
Speak Up. When you see an open hydrant, errant sprinkler or broken pipe, tell the property owner, local authorities or your Water Management District.
Look for Leaks. Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is used. If it doesn’t read exactly the same, you have a leak.
Tap Out. Instead of letting the tap run until water gets cold, keep a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator, and use it to refill certified reusable water bottles instead of opting for single-use plastic ones.
Tap In. Place a bucket in your shower to capture the water that runs while you’re waiting for it to get hot. Use the water to water plants.
Watch for WaterSense. When you shop for plumbing fixtures, look for the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense label, which means they meet strict criteria for efficiency and performance.3 Click here to learn more.
Go to the carwash. Water in most car washes is reclaimed (re-used) so the total amount of freshwater used is reduced.
