1. Donít flush water and money down the drain. Fix leaks promptly. It has been
shown that leaking faucets and toilets account for 14 percent of all indoor
water use, which can add up to 20 gallons of water per person per day. Donít
forget to check outdoor faucets, pipes and hoses for leaks too, before winter
2. Take shorter showers by setting a time limit for yourself. Also, try and be
aware of the amount of water you are using by turning off the faucet while
brushing your teeth and washing your hands.

program. Lahara bath suite by Delta flows at 1.5 gallons per minute at 60 pounds
per square inch, saving about 30 percent more water than a standard faucet,
which flows at 2.2 gallons per minute.
5. If your toilet was installed before 1980, install a toilet dam or filled
bottle to save water during each flush (make sure operating parts are not
affected by these installations). Consider installing a new toilet that uses
less than 1.6 gallons of water per flush.
6. When shopping for showerheads, look for models that save water without
compromising the shower experience. The Water-Efficient Showerhead with

water, and delivers larger water droplets while using 36 percent less water than
a standard showerhead.

choose drought-resistant and low water consuming plants. Your local home
extension service can be found online and can help you choose plants appropriate
to your geographic region.
