Top 10 Water Savings Tips

  1. Replace older toilets with water efficient models that flush with only 4.8 litres (includes dual-flush) or less of water.

  2. Install toilet devices such as displacement bags, toilet dams, or adjustable flappers to save water each time the toilet is flushed.

  3. Install a water efficient showerhead that uses no more than 6.4 litres (1.75 gallons) of water per minute.

  4. Reduce your showering time from 8 to 5 minutes.

  5. Install aerators on your kitchen and bathroom faucets to reduce water use by up to 4.5 litres (1.2 gallons) per minute.

  6. When replacing your washing machine, try a high-efficiency, front loading machine, which uses about 30 per cent less water and anywhere from 40 to 70 per cent less energy.

  7. When replacing your dishwasher, choose a water efficient dishwasher that uses only 27 litres (6 gallons) per load.

  8. Try to run your appliances, such as the washing machine and dishwasher only when full, using the energy saver or shortest cycle.

  9. Check toilets and faucets regularly for leaks.

  10. When brushing teeth, shaving, or washing your hands, be careful not to let the water run unnecessarily.
