Ways To Use Water Efficiently - Residential Household Water Use
Use less water with daily tasks. Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth, shorten your showers, and wash full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine. Tips for Water Efficiency
Check for leaks in the house and outside. Toilets are the #1 household leaks. Check your water meter periodically when all appliances are turned off to see if the meter is still running. If the meter numbers are increasing when all appliances and irrigation is off, check for leaks. Repair leaks as soon as possible. How To Detect A Water Leak
Check the toilet flapper inside the tank to see if it is properly situated. Use a few drops of food coloring or a dye tablet inside the tank, and then in a few minutes, check to see if any color makes its way into the toilet bowl. If so, your toilet tank flapper or another part may not be working properly and may need to be replaced
Use an aerator on faucets and showerheads to achieve the same performance while saving water
Replace inefficient appliances with “Energy Star” high efficiency appliances. The following is a list of California high efficiency standards for household appliances:
- Toilets 1.28 gallons/flush
- Showerheads 2.2 gallons/minute
- Faucets 2.2 gallons/minute
