Save Water Indoors

Save Water Indoors
  • Perform an annual maintenance check on your evaporative (swamp) cooler. Check for and fix any leaks you find.

  • Wash only full loads in your washing machine, or adjust the water level to reflect the size of the load.

  • Pay attention to your water bill and become familiar with your water meter—use them to track your water use and detect leaks.

  • Purchase appliances that offer water- and energy-efficient cycle options.

  • Fix leaky plumbing fixtures, faucets and appliances in the house.

  • Show children how to turn off the faucets completely after each use.

  • Locate your master water shut-off valve so that water can be saved if a pipe bursts.

  • Install aerators on every faucet. This could save you as much as 1 gallon every minute you use them.

  • Be aware! Listen for drips and leaks around the house.
