In the Bathroom
- Replace your old shower head with a good-quality, high-efficiency shower head.
- Check for and repair leaks in your pipes, faucets and toilets.
- Don’t use your toilet as a waste basket. Use a fill cycle regulator to decrease the fill of water into your bowl.
In the Kitchen & Laundry
- Only run your dishwasher and washing machines when they are full.
- Instead of running the faucet to wait for cold water, fill a pitcher of water with drinking water and store it in your refrigerator.
- When washing your car, use soap and water from a bucket.
- Use a hose with a shut-off nozzle for the final rinse only.
- Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway.
- Landscape with plants that require low water consumption.
- Water your lawn no more than every third day, and only during the cool time of the day in the morning or evening.
- Adjust the sprinklers so only the lawn and plants are being watered, not your house, the sidewalk or the street.
