Tips to reduce your water use

With the current drought conditions, it's more necessary than ever to conserve water. There are many ways to reduce water use in the yard and your home.

Here are some helpful tips to maximize your water savings:

  • Check soil moisture before turning on sprinklers (saves 80 gallons/day)
  • Replace old sprinklers with more efficient rotary nozzes (saves 8 gallons/1,000 square feet/day)
  • Water plants early in the morning to reduce evaporation (saves 50 gallons each time you water)
  • Check and fix leaks inside your home (saves 30-50 gallons/day)
