Indoors

It’s easy and inexpensive to make changes in your house that can save you money each time you turn on the water, flush your toilet, and wash dishes – all year round.

Start with your bathroom 

If you’re like most people, you probably use the most water in your bathroom, so it makes sense to make your first changes there:

  1. Switch your bathroom faucet aerator and showerhead to WaterSense-labeled (external link) models – they use 20% less water without compromising performance. 

  2. Reduce the amount of water flowing through your toilet by regularly checking for and fixing leaks, and retrofitting older toilets.

Beyond the bathroom

Once you’ve made those easy changes to your bathroom, check other parts of your house for water savings:

  1. Look for leaks – many leaks are inexpensive and easy to fix.
  2. Consider upgrading your toilet, clothes washer, or dishwasher. Some energy and water providers offer rebates for their customers installing these appliances, so be sure to check with your providers before making a purchase.
