Conserving Water for the Future .....

The first step in understanding how to conserve water in your home is to know where water is used. Most people use 50 to 70 gallons of water indoors each day and as much as the same amount outdoors, depending on the season. Indoors, three quarters of all the water is used in the bathroom. Outdoors, lawn and garden watering and car washing account for most of the water

Use your water meter to check for hidden water leaks. A small drip from a faucet can add up to 20 gallons of water a day.

    Water Conservation in the home








Turn off the faucet while you are shaving or brushing your teeth or hand washing dishes.
Install water-saving shower heads and take shorter showers. A 4 to 6 minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water.
Use your dishwasher and clothes washer for only full loads. On many washers you can adjust the water level with the size of the load. If you are in the market for a new washer consider a water saving frontload washer.
