Water Saving Tips 2 of 10


  • Minimize evaporation by watering during the early morning hours, when temperatures are cooler and winds are lighter.
  • Wash your produce in the sink or a pan that is partially filled with water instead of running water from the tap.
  • Use a layer of organic mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and save hundreds of gallons of water a year.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway or sidewalk and save 80 gallons of water every time.
  • If your shower can fill a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, then replace it with a water-efficient showerhead.
  • Collect the water you use for rinsing produce and reuse it to water houseplants.
  • Divide your watering cycle into shorter periods to reduce runoff and allow for better absorption every time you water.
  • We're more likely to notice leaky faucets indoors, but don't forget to check outdoor faucets, pipes, and hoses for leaks.
  • Periodically check your pool for leaks if you have an automatic refilling device.Only water your lawn when needed. You can tell this by simply walking across your lawn. If you leave footprints, it's time to water.
  • When you shop for a new appliance, consider one offering cycle and load size adjustments. They are more water and energy-efficient than older appliances.
