Water Saving Tips 10 of 10

  • Bathe your pets outdoors in an area in need of water.
  • Choose new water-saving appliances, like washing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.
  • Water only as rapidly as the soil can absorb the water.
  • Aerate your lawn. Punch holes in your lawn about six inches apart so water will reach the roots rather than run off the surface.
  • Select the proper size pans for cooking. Large pans require more cooking water than may be necessary.
  • Place an empty tuna can on your lawn to catch and measure the water output of your sprinklers. For lawn watering advice, contact your local conservation office.
  • Turn off the water while you shave and you can save more than 100 gallons a week.
  • Save the water from the melted ice in your cooler and use for your plants.
  • When cleaning out your fish tank place the water in your garden as it will not only provide moisture but also is a great source of fertilizer.
  • Thaw food in the refrigerator not in water (its safter for you and saves water).
