Common Water Saving Tips

When you save water, you save money on your utility bills too. Saving water is easy for everyone to do.

  1. Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks.
  2. When washing clothes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  3. Plant in the rainy season when conditions are cooler and rainfall is more plentiful. You will not be tempted to irrigate.
  4. Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
  5. Use a broom and a bucket instead of a hose when cleaning your carpet, veranda or garage.
  6. If your shower fills a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, replace the showerhead with a water-efficient model.
  7. Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, then reuse it to water houseplants.
