  • SHOWER HEAD

    Swap out your 2.75 gpm showerhead with a 1.75 water-conserving showerhead and you can save more than 7,700 gallons of water per year.*

  • HET TOILETS

    Replace older, less efficient toilets with 1.28-gallon High-Efficiency Toilets (HETs) to save up to 16,500 gallons of water per year.

  • LEAKY FAUCETS

    Fix leaky faucets and install faucets with water-saving aerators to effortlessly save hundreds of gallons of water per year.

  • WASHING MACHINE

    Use the appropriate water level/load size on the washing machine when doing laundry. Consider purchasing a front-load washing machine.

  • BROOM

    Use a broom rather than a hose to clean off driveways, steps and sidewalks.

  • WATER GARDEN

    Water your garden during the coolest part of the day, generally in the morning, and avoid watering on windy days.

  • BRUSHING TEETH

    Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving to keep excess water from going down the drain.

  • LANDSCAPE

    Landscape with native or low-water plants to significantly reduce water usage outside the home.

  • WATER HOUSEPLANTS

    Use leftover water for houseplants, instead of pouring out a half-empty glass of drinking water.

  • DISHWASHER

    Make sure the dishwasher is fully loaded to maximize the dishes cleaned in a cycle.
