Did you know?A poorly sealing flapper can waste as much as 200 gallons of water per day.
Bathroom Water Saving Tips
When a toilet handle sticks in the flush position, requiring you to "jiggle the handle," the flapper is wide-open. Check that the chain is set to the correct length and assure smooth operation. Running toilets can waste over 200 gallons per hour.
A toilet is not a trashcan. Dispose of tissues, insects and other similar waste in the trash bin rather than the toilet.
Turn off the water while shaving, washing your face, or brushing your teeth.
Install a displacement device such as a bag or bottle inside the toilet tank to cut down on the amount of water needed for each flush.
Replace your shower head with a high-efficiency version. Look for the EPA WaterSense label for efficiency and performance.
Take shorter showers. Save even more by briefly turning the water on to get wet; off to lather up; then on again to rinse.
Catch excess water from your shower to water plants. The same technique can be used when washing dishes or vegetables in the sink.
