Six Tips to Help You Conserve Water Today

What can you as a homeowner do to start conserving water right away? Here are a few practical tips:

  • Keep tabs on taps. Always turn taps off tightly so they do not drip.
  • Look into leaks. Promptly repair any leaks in and around your taps, pipes, toilets, or appliances. One small leak can add up to a lot of water over time.
  • Lower the flow. Use an aerator and/or a water flow-reducer attachment on your tap to reduce your water usage. And, if your faucets are more than 10 years old, replacing both kitchen and bath faucets is an easy way to reduce water usage.
  • Be mindful of household chores. Wash only full loads of laundry or dishes or use the appropriate water level or load size selection on the washing machine or dishwasher.
  • Watch water usage during hygiene. Turn off the tap while shaving or brushing teeth. This can save up to 10 gallons of water per day. Take shorter showers and use a low-flow showerhead.
  • Make use of the rain. Collect rainwater in barrels or buckets and use it for gardening or watering houseplants.
