Water Conservation At Home

There are many ways for tenants and owners to conserve water everyday at home. Here are a few tips to help us all do our part:

  1. Check all your faucets and pipes for leaks
  2. Install faucet aerators
  3. Don’t use the toilet as a trash can, each flush wastes 5 gallons of water
  4. Water your plants in the morning
  5. Shorten your shower, cutting two minutes can save 150 gallons a month
  6. Leave clippings on the lawn – loose clippings help grass hold in moisture
  7. Cook in as little water as possible – this also helps retain nutrients
  8. Scrape dishes rather than rinsing
  9. Turn off automatic water systems when not needed
  10. Use recirculating pumps for any fountains, pools, ponds, etc.
