Getting leaks fixed is very important when it comes to conserving water.

  • Check for leaks– Check for hidden leaks and have them repaired immediately. If your faucet drips once per second, you could be wasting up to 2,700 gallons of water a year.
  • Take shorter showers- By getting out of the shower just a few minutes earlier, you can save a lot of water. Another good options is to install an ultra low-flow version shower head. Also, don’t let the water run while you are shaving or brushing your teeth.
  • Dishwashers and washing machines– Only wash your dirty dishes and do your laundry when you have a full load. This will keep you from using more water on multiple washes.
