Much like your electricity bill, if you reduce the amount of water you use, you can save money. See below for some helpful household tips on water conservation.
Save Water Flush Less
Did you know every time you flush the toilet you use between 2 to 7 gallons of water? Avoid using your toilet as a trashcan and only flush the three P's - pee, poop and (toilet ) paper.
If you have an 18 liter/flush toliet, you can save water by replacing it with an ultra-low volume (ULV) 6 liter/flush toilet. This swap can provide up to 70% in savings of water flushed and will cut indoor water use by around 30%.
Grow Your Savings
Sprinklers can also use a lot of water, especially sprinklers that deliver small water drops and mist because the water often evaporates before it even hits the ground. By using sprinklers that deliver larger drops of water closer to the ground, you can keep your grass green and water usage low.
The plants and shrubs in your yard can also pull a lot of water. Next time you add or replace something in your garden, opt for a low water use plant for year-round landscape color and almost 550 gallons of savings per year.
