Ways To Conserve On Water

  • You can install an aerator on your faucet at a very small fee, which will regulate the water that comes out of the faucet.
  • You can turn the water off while shampooing your hair and back on to rinse it rather than leaving it on all the time.
  • Turn the water off while brushing your teeth.
  • Immediately repair any drips or leaks you may have.
  • Check all toilets to be sure they shut off properly.
  • Check all yard and garden hoses to make sure no leaking occurs.
