Outdoor Water Saving Tips
- When you clean your fish tank, use the water you’ve drained for your plants. The water is rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, providing you with a free and effective fertilizer.
- Grab a wrench and fix that leaky faucet. It’s simple, inexpensive, and can save 140 gallons a week.
- Make sure there are aerators on all of your faucets.
- Insulate hot water pipes so you don’t have to run as much water to get hot water to the faucet.
- Save water and salt by running the minimum number of regenerations necessary to maintain water softness.
- While staying in a hotel or even at home, consider reusing your towels.
- Teach your children to turn the faucets off tightly after each use.
- When you give your pet fresh water, don’t throw the old water down the drain. Use it to water your trees or shrubs.
