Tips for Water Conservation Inside the Home


  • Upgrade your dishwasher; the average dishwasher uses 9.3 gallons a load, but that high-efficiency models use only 5 to 7 gallons a load.
  • Run your dishwasher only when full.
  • Pre-rinse dishwasher loads in a bowl instead of under a tap; this will save you 2.5 gallons a minute.
  • Replace standard faucet aerators with low-flow models; this will save you more than 1,700 gallons a year.


  • Replace an older toilet with a new, ultra-low flush brand; this will save you up to 350 gallons a week.
  • Replace regular showerheads with low-flow fixtures; this will save you up to 230 gallons a week. Shorter showers can save 2.5 gallons a minute.
  • Turn off water when brushing your teeth; this will save you 2 gallons a minute.


  • Switch to a high-efficiency washing machine; this will save you up to 30 gallons a load.
  • Wash only full loads of clothes.
  • Use gray-water. These systems redirect laundry and shower water to yards and gardens, conserving 30,000 to 40,000 gallons of water per year.
