Do you have a leaky faucet? Not only is that drip, drip, drip annoying, the amount of water going down the drain can be tremendous. Assume your faucet is dripping 60 drops per minute, you’re wasting about 2800 gallons every year. Now assume that you might have more than one faucet dripping or imagine how many faucets are dripping in your community – adds up pretty fast. Don’t let leaky faucets keep dripping. If you can’t fix it yourself, please call a plumber and have it repaired. Better yet, have it replaced with a WaterSense labeled faucet and save water every time you use it.

Look for the WaterSense label! Older, inefficient toilets are responsible for most of the water wasted in American homes. Replacing these toilets with WaterSense labeled toilets could save nearly 2 billion gallons per day across the country. So whether you’re remodeling a bathroom, building a new home, or simply replacing an old, leaky toilet, a WaterSense labeled toilet is a high-performing, water-efficient option worth considering.

It takes a considerable amount of energy to deliver and treat the water you use everyday. American public water supply and treatment facilities consume about 56 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year—enough electricity to power more than 5 million homes for an entire year. For example, letting your faucet run for five minutes uses about as much energy as letting a 60-watt light bulb run for 14 hours.

The best time to water your yard is in the early morning or late evening when it’s cool outside. Watering when it’s hot and sunny is wasteful because most of the water evaporates before the plants have time to drink it.

Washing your car with a bucket and sponge instead of a hose saves a lot of water. A hose can waste 6 gallons per minute if you leave it running, but using a bucket and sponge only uses a few gallons!
Also, some car washes recycle water instead of letting it run down the sewer drains. Make sure your favorite car wash recycles
