Tips for saving water.

Tips for saving water.

1. Check your toilet for leaks. 

2. Stop using your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket

3. Put a plastic bottle in your toilet tank

4. Take shorter showers, and shower with a bucket and pour water onto plants.

5. Install water-saving shower heads or flow restrictors

6. Take baths ( A partially filled tub uses less water than all but the shortest showers. )

7. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth

8. Turn off the water while shaving ( Fill the bottom of the sink with a few inches of warm water )

9. Check taps and pipes for leaks

10. Use your automatic dishwasher for full loads only

11. Use your automatic washing machine for full loads only

12. Don't let the tap run while you clean vegetables ( Rinse in a bowl or sink full of clean water. )

13. Keep a bottle of drinking water in the refrigerator

14. If you wash dishes by hand, don't leave the water running for rinsing

15. Check taps and pipes for leaks

16. Water your lawn only when it needs it (  Step on some grass. If it springs back up when you move your foot, it doesn't need water. )

17. Deep-soak your lawn ( A light sprinkling that sits on the surface will simply evaporate and be wasted. )

18. Water during the cool parts of the day

19. Don't water on windy days. ( Water blows onto pavement or evaporates )

20. Plant drought-resistant trees and plants

21. Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants.

22. Use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and steps ( Don't hose to clean )

23. Don't run the hose while washing your car ( Soap down your car from a pail of soapy water. Use a hose only to rinse it off.) or use a Waterless wash, or Rinsless product.

24. Tell your children not to play with the hose and sprinklers

25. Check for leaks in pipes, hoses taps and couplings
