Here are some quick water conservation tips that can save water and money. When these water saving tips are combined with water conservation measures such as rainwater harvesting tanks and grey water recycling, savings on the monthly water bill can be substantial.
Verify your home is leak free–read your water meter before and after a one-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak somewhere.
Repair leaky faucets and pipes.
Check toilet tanks–add a few drops of food colouring into the tank. If the toilet is leaking, colour will appear in the water in the bowl within 30 minutes.
Install a displacement device in the toilet tank. This will cut down on the amount of water needed per flush.
Operate the dishwasher and washing machine only when you have a full load.
Connect a shut-off nozzle to your hose.
Use a broom and dustpan instead of a hose to clean debris off the patio, sidewalk, and driveway.
Become an involved citizen–report all significant water losses (broken pipes, errant sprinklers, open hydrants, etc.).
