Indoor Tips

reducing-water-use-at-home - 100+ Ways To Conserve WaterKitchen

  1. #1There are a number of ways to save water, and they all start with you.
  2. #2When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  3. #3Dishwashers typically use less water than washing dishes by hand. Now, Energy Star dishwashers save even more water and energy.
  4. #4If your dishwasher is new, cut back on rinsing. Newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.
  5. #5Designate one glass for your drinking water each day, or refill a water bottle. This will cut down on the number of glasses to wash.
  6. #6Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
  7. #7Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Instead, compost vegetable food waste and save gallons every time.
  8. #8Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
  9. #9Don’t use running water to thaw food. For water efficiency and food safety, defrost food in the refrigerator.
  10. #10Install an instant water heater near your kitchen sink so you don’t have to run the water while it heats up. This also reduces energy costs.
  11. #11Keep a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. This way, every drop goes down you and not the drain.
  12. #12Reuse leftover water from cooked or steamed foods to start a nutritious soup, it’s one more way to get eight glasses of water a day.
  13. #13Cook food in as little water as possible. This also helps it retain more nutrients.
  14. #14Select the proper pan size for cooking. Large pans may require more cooking water than necessary.
  15. #15If you accidentally drop ice cubes, don’t throw them in the sink. Drop them in a house plant instead.
  16. #16Collect the water you use while rinsing fruit and vegetables. Use it to water house plants.
  17. #17When shopping for a new dishwasher, use the Consortium for Energy Efficiency website to compare water use between models.

Average_HH_water_use - 100+ Ways To Conserve WaterLaundry Room

  1. #18When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.
  2. #19Washing dark clothes in cold water saves water and energy, and helps your clothes retain their color.
  3. #20When shopping for a new washing machine, compare resource savings among Energy Star models. Some can save up to 20 gallons of water per load.
  4. #21Have a plumber re-route your greywater to trees and plants rather than the sewer line. Check with your city and county for codes.
  5. #22When buying a washer, check the Consortium for Energy Efficiency website to compare water use between models.

  2. #24Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
  3. #25Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes. You’ll save up to 1,000 gallons per month.
  4. #26Toilet leaks can be silent! Be sure to test your toilet for leaks at least once a year.
  5. #27Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the bowl without flushing, there’s a leak. Fix it and start saving gallons.

  7. #29Upgrade older toilets with water-saving WaterSense® labeled models.

  11. #33If your toilet was installed before 1992, purchasing a WaterSense® labeled toilet can reduce the amount of water used for each flush.
  12. #34Consider buying a dual-flush toilet. It has two flush options: a half-flush for liquid waste and a full-flush for solid waste.
  13. #35Plug the sink instead of running the water to rinse your razor and save up to 300 gallons a month.

  18. #40Drop tissues in the trash instead of flushing them and save water every time.
  19. #41Look for WaterSense® labeled toilets, sink faucets, urinals and showerheads.

  1. #81Hire a qualified pro to install your irrigation system and keep it working properly and efficiently.
  2. #82Hire a Smartscape Certified professional landscaper who has received landscape training specific to the Sonoran Desert.
  3. #83Adjust your lawn mower to the height of 1.5 to 2 inches. Taller grass shades roots and holds soil moisture better than short grass.
  4. #84Leave lawn clippings on your grass, this cools the ground and holds in moisture.
  5. #85If installing a lawn, select a lawn mix or blend that matches your climate and site conditions.
  6. #86Aerate your lawn periodically. Holes every six inches will allow water to reach the roots, rather than run off the surface.
  7. #87If walking across the lawn leaves footprints (blades don’t spring back up), then it is time to water.
  8. #88Let your lawn go dormant (brown) during the winter. Dormant grass only needs to be watered every three to four weeks, less if it rains.
  9. #89Avoid overseeding your lawn with winter grass. Ryegrass needs water every few days, whereas Dormant Bermuda grass needs water monthly.
  10. #90Remember to weed your lawn and garden regularly. Weeds compete with other plants for nutrients, light and water.
  11. #91While fertilizers promote plant growth, they also increase water consumption. Apply the minimum amount of fertilizer needed.
  12. #92Water your summer lawns once every three days and your winter lawn once every five days.
  13. #93Catch water in an empty tuna can to measure sprinkler output. 3/4 to 1 inch of water is enough to apply each time you irrigate.

  7. #124Keep water in the pool when playing, it will save water.
  8. #125Instead of building a private pool, join a community pool.
  9. #126Trickling or cascading fountains lose less water to evaporation than those that spray water into the air.
  10. #127Use a grease pencil to conduct a bucket test to check for pool leaks. An unnatural water level drop may indicate a leak.
