Saving Water in the Bathroom

Don’t let precious water wash down the drain in your bathroom. Install low-flow toilets. These toilets use 1.5 gallons of water per flush rather than 5 to 7 gallons used by conventional toilets. This change will save thousands of gallons of water per year. Check for leaking faucets and toilets. Place a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color appears in the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak! “Reduce our Use: Working together to save water”.

Saving Water Outdoors

Don’t let precious water run off down the gutter. If you are allowed to water lawns and landscape gardens, make sure thirsty plants drink up the water. Don’t apply water to streets and paved areas where it will be wasted. Install water efficient sprinklers and timing devices, and keep an eye on them, to make sure they operate correctly. Remember to stay informed on local watering rules and restrictions for your area. “Reduce our Use: Working together to save water”.
