 Tips for saving water inside your home


Source: Handbook of Water Use and
Conservation, Amy Vickers

Bathroom
Bathroom use accounts for about 75 percent of the water used inside the home.

  • Check regularly for any leaks in your toilet, faucets and water hose bibs and fix them.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead.
  • Replace older, larger-use toilets with the newer higher efficiency toilets.
  • Take short showers and save the baths for special occasions.

Kitchen
About 8 percent of in-home water use takes place in the kitchen.

  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. An efficient dishwasher usually uses much less water than washing dishes by hand.
  • Install a low-flow faucet aerator, which can cut water use in half.
  • When buying a new dishwasher, consider purchasing a water-saving model. (New models use up to 25 percent less water than older ones.)

Around the house

  • Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.
  • When buying a new clothes washer, consider purchasing a water-saving model.
  • Insulate hot water pipes where possible to avoid long delays (and wasted water) while waiting for the water to “run hot.” When building a new home, keep the distance short between the hot water heater and showers and other places that hot water is used.
