A few simple wise water use tips can make a difference in how much water you use:
- Take shorter showers.
- Load your dishwasher to full capacity.
- A twist here. A turn off there. It all adds up. Start by turning off the tap in the bathroom when you brush your teeth or shave. Turn off the tap in the kitchen while cleaning fruits and veggies.
- Repair leaky faucets and replace water-guzzling fixtures and appliances with their water-efficient counterparts. A leaky faucet can waste too much water - one drip per second wastes 6000 gallons of water per year
- Put a shut-off nozzle on your hose. A single hose left on uses nearly 300 gallons of water per hour
