Indoor Water Use

By adopting water saving measures, you can reduce the amount of water used inside your home and save money.  Making a habit of conservation makes sense, it protects water resources now and for in the future.

Water-Saving Tips
  • Turn the water off when you brush your teeth.
  • Don't use the toilet as a trashcan. Aside from wasting water, plumbing and sewers aren't necessarily equipped to handle foreign objects.
  • Try to limit your showers to 5 minutes or less. Limiting your shower time saves water and money.
  • Take baths that are only 1/2 full. 
  • Make sure the dishwasher and washing machine are full before running them. Not only will this save water, but it will help save energy as well!
  • While waiting for your shower to get warm, capture the cold water in a bucket for watering indoor plants, cleaning, or refilling your pets water bowl.

Water Saving Devices
  • Conservation_ToiletPremium High Efficiency Toilets: These newer toilet models use only 4-liters of water (1.06 gallons) per flush. That's 20% less water per flush than the WaterSense standard of 1.6 gallons per flush.
  • Low-Flow Showerheads: Using a showerhead with a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute or less can save 40 - 50% more water than conventional showerheads. Also, try taking shorter showers!
  • Water/Energy Efficient Washing Machines: The most effective water-efficient washing machines are front loading. Please visit to learn more about rebates.
  • Faucet Aerators: Using a small, quick-to-install aerator on your faucets can save a significant amount of water, without a noticeable reduction in flow.
