Water Saving Tips


Did you know a leaky toilet can cost you thousands?
A new toilet flap costs between $5-15
Don’t let your money go down the drain!

  • Install a low-flow showerhead that limits the flow from the shower to less than three gallons
    per minute.
  • Take short showers or turn the water off while washing and back on again only to rinse.
  • Take a shower instead of taking a bath.
  • Showers with low-flow showerheads often use less water than taking a bath.
  • Reduce the level of the water being used in a bathtub by one or two inches if a shower is
    not available.


  • Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants.
  • Mulch will slow evaporation of moisture while discouraging weed growth.
  • Soft, wet areas around your sprinkler heads, especially when the system has not been in use,  could indicate a leak. Contact your licensed landscape professional to determine if repairs are needed.


  • Don’t throw dropped ice cubes in the sink: they can be used to water house plants.
  • When kids want to play in the sprinkler, use it in an area your lawn needs water most.
  • Don’t let the sun steal your water: water your lawn in the morning or evening.
  • Ensure sprinklers water grass and not concrete.

    Water is a precious resource: Every drop counts!
