Indoor Water Conservation Tips
Examine all pipes and faucets for potential leaks. You may be losing gallons of water daily through unnoticed drips.
Identify Hidden Toilet Leaks
Test your toilets for hidden leaks. Add food coloring to the tank water; if the color seeps into the bowl without flushing, it indicates a leak.
Opt for partially filled tubs over full ones. A typical bathtub can hold over 50 gallons of water, which can be reduced significantly.
Install water-saving showerheads. Additionally, turn off the water while lathering or shampooing, and try to limit the duration of your showers.
Mindful Tap Habits
Turn off the tap while shaving or brushing your teeth to prevent unnecessary water wastage.
Keep a bottle of chilled water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap until it's cold.
Only wash full loads, or adjust the machine settings to match the load size, promoting better water efficiency.
Ensure your dishwasher is loaded to capacity before running it, reducing the frequency of washes and hence water usage.
