Simple ways to
conserve water
Turn off the tap.

Over half of all water used inside a home takes place in a bathroom. Small fixes such as turning off the water while shaving or brushing your teeth and opting for a shower over a bath can help cut down on the amount of water wasted.

Wax on, wax off.

If you're looking to give your car a nice wash, be sure to use water from a bucket instead of a hose or look for a commercial car wash that recycles water

Buy efficient.

From electric water heaters to washing machines, a simple way to save both water and energy is to shop for water-efficient products. Keep an eye out for WaterSense labeled products and ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances that use water.

Use a dishwasher.

Not a fan of washing dirty dishes by hand? Well, good news! Just scrape your plate instead of rinsing it and load it right into the dishwasher, but make sure it's fully loaded before running a cycle

Time it right.

Generally, the best time to water lawns is early mornings and evenings to avoid the sun rays. This helps to prevent water loss due to evaporation.

Check for leaks.

The average household leaks can account for 10,000 gallons of water per year. If your home water usage has suspiciously gone up, check for common leaks, such as worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets and other leaking valves.

Inspect your sprinkler.

Inspect your sprinkler system. Give it a good look-over before turning it on, as a broken sprinkler head can waste 25,000 gallons of water in six months.
