Need some tips to help your community save water? Here at California Sub-Meters, we believe strongly in conservation. Follow these helpful hints below and you can do your part to conserve our most precious resource!
When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1000 gallons a month.
Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost instead and save gallons every time.
Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap for cold drinks, so that every drop goes down you not the drain.
Wash your produce in the sink or a pan that is partially filled with water instead of running water from the tap.
If your shower can fill a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, then replace it with a water-efficient showerhead.
Collect the water you use for rinsing produce and reuse it to water houseplants.
When you shop for a new appliance, consider one offering cycle and load size adjustments. They are more water and energy-efficient than older appliances.
Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes. You’ll save up to 1000 gallons a month.
Install low-volume toilets.
When you clean your fish tank, use the water you’ve drained on your plants. The water is rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, providing you with a free and effective fertilizer.
Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the toilet bowl, you have a leak. It’s easy to fix, and you can save more than 600 gallons a month.
Plug the bathtub before turning the water on, then adjust the temperature as the tub fills up.
Designate one glass for your drinking water each day. This will cut down on the number of times you run your dishwasher.
Don’t use running water to thaw food.
Grab a wrench and fix that leaky faucet. It’s simple, inexpensive, and can save 140 gallons a week.
When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.
Teach your children to turn the faucets off tightly after each use.
