Water Conservation at Home
- Don’t flush trash down the toilet. Five to seven gallons of water is wasted every time you flush a cigarette butt, facial tissue or other small bit of trash.
- Check your toilets, faucets and pipes for leaks regularly. EyeonWater makes this easy for residents!
- Install water-saving shower heads and low-flow faucet aerators.
- Use your water meter to check for hidden water leaks.
- Insulate your water pipes.
- Take shorter showers. The recommended time is 5 minutes.
- Shut off the water while brushing your teeth, only run it when necessary for rinsing or other use.
- Only wash clothes and run the dishwasher when there is a full load.
- When washing dishes by hand, fill the sink up with hot water instead of leaving the faucet running.
