Indoors 

  • Replace older toilets with a WaterSense labeled high efficiency toilet
  • Only use your washing machine and dishwasher when you are washing full loads
  • Let your dishwasher do the work - Dishwashers conserve much more water than washing dishes by hand with the water constantly running
  • Take shorter showers - Each minute you shave off your shower will save you water and reduce your monthly bill
  • Install a high efficiency showerhead
  • Turn your faucet off while you are shaving and brushing your teeth - Faucets should only be turned on while you are rinsing.

 Outdoors

  • Familiarize yourself with local irrigation restrictions
  • Plant a Florida-Friendly Landscape
  • Check you irrigations heads regularly to ensure all they are functioning properly
  • Use the correct irrigation head for the appropriate area
  • Adjust irrigation heads so they do not water paved areas such as driveways and sidewalks
  • Check for and repair leaks - Even small leaks can waste hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water a month
