Use these 8 tips to help you save water around your home – and become a little greener in the process.

  1. Adjust your sprinklers so they water your landscaping only and not your house, driveway, sidewalk or street.

  2. When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run for rinsing. Fill up the sink with clean rinse water.

  3. Install covers over your swimming pools, spas, and hot tubs. Check for leaks around your pumps.

  4. Monitor your water bill for unusually high charges. A high charge may be an indication of a leak somewhere in your water lines.

  5. Monitor inside and outside faucets, hoses, and sprinklers for damage and leaks. Outdoor leaks may be harder to spot but can be just as costly over the course of the summer.

  6. Use your washing machine only when you have a full load of laundry. Or match the water level in your washing machine to the correct level of clothes.

  7. Make water conservation a family issue. Teach kids how to conserve by turning off faucets tightly after each use, and watching for leaks in their bathrooms.

  8. Install a hot water circulation system to have instant hot water within your home. Even in the summer, it’s nice to take a warm shower or have hot water to wash dishes. This will save hundreds of gallons of water per year by not requiring warm-up time before use.
