How can I conserve water?
You can play a role in conserving water and in saving yourself money by becoming conscious of the amount of water your household is using and by looking for ways to use less whenever you can. It is not hard to conserve water. Here are a few tips:
  • Automatic dishwashers use 15 gallons of water in every cycle, regardless of how many dishes are loaded. So, get a run for your money and load it to capacity.

  • Check every faucet in your home for leaks. Even a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day. Fix it, and you can save almost 6,000 gallons per year.

  • Check your toilets for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank. Watch for a few minutes to see if the color shows up in the bowl. It is not uncommon to lose up to 100 gallons a day from an invisible toilet leak. Fix it, and you can save more than 30,000 gallons a year.

  • Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
