Water Saving Tips 8 of 10

  • Drop that tissue in the trash instead of flushing it and save gallons every time.
  • If you have an evaporative cooler, direct the water drain to a flowerbed, tree, or your lawn.
  • Make suggestions to your employer to save water (and dollars) at work.
  • Support projects that use reclaimed wastewater for irrigation and other uses.
  • Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while you wash your car and save more than 100 gallons.
  • Encourage your friends and neighbors to be part of a water-conscious community.
  • If your toilet was installed prior to 1980, place a toilet dam or bottle filled with water in your toilet tank to cut down on the amount of water used for each flush.
  • Be sure these devices do not interfere with operating parts.
  • Install water softening systems only when necessary. Save water and salt by running the minimum number of regenerations necessary to maintain water softness.
  • Wash clothes only when you have a full load and save up to 600 gallons each month.
