Indoor Water Saving Tips

  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Turn your water off while you’re brushing your teeth.
  • Fill kettles only with the amount of water you need.
  • Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
  • Fix dripping faucets.
  • Limit the use of your garbage disposal as it requires a sizeable amount of water to operate properly.
  • Ensure you always have a pitcher of water in the refrigerator for drinking, so you won’t have to let the water run to get cold water.
  • Save water by limiting your shower to the time it takes you to soap up and rinse off.
  • Install water-saving showerheads.
  • When buying new appliances, ensure they are water-efficient.
  • Do not use your toilet as a waste basket. Throw tissues, insects and other trash in the wastebasket, not the toilet.
  • Check your toilet for leaks. For more information, view how to Test Your Toilet.
