Ways to Reduce Your Usage

The average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day at home. Reducing water usage can come from modest changes in your daily habits. Here are a few habits you can change to reduce your bill.

Save up to 2 gallons per minute by:

  • Turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth, shaving or washing dishes.
  • Installing water-efficient showerheads.
  • Installing water-reducing, low-flow faucet aerators.

Save up to 2 gallons per minute by:

  • Equipping your garden hose with an automatic shut off nozzle to keep it from running.
  • Using a broom, instead of a hose, to clean sidewalks, driveways and pavement.

Save up to 2 gallons per minute by:

  • Reducing your loads of laundry and dishes by only running full loads.
  • Cutting back on your outdoor watering or irrigation.
  • Repairing leaky toilets and other plumbing leaks as soon as possible, this can save you hundreds of gallons per day! We have complimentary dye tabs, which are tools for checking leaks, available at our customer service building during working hours.
  • Replacing older toilets and clothes washers with water-efficient models.
  • Filling up a container with tap water and keep in in the fridge, instead of running the tap and waiting for the water to get cold
  • Trying to reduce the amount of time you spend in the shower.
