Saving Water Indoors

Follow these Steps to Save Water Indoors

Saving water inside the house is easier than you think.

  1. Use the right equipment - Update your fixtures whenever they wear out. For example, exchange your old showerhead with a new WaterSense labeled showerhead. The City of Plano gives out WaterSense labeled showerheads as well as other water conservation retrofit items for free. Planning to replace the old toilet in your home with a new high efficiency toilet? The City offers a credit on your water utility bill for that replacement.
  2. Find and fix leaks - The average American home loses up to 30% of water consumption through leaks. View more information on how to find and fix leaks around your home.
  3. Change your behavior - There are many opportunities to stop wasting water through simple actions that add up to a big contribution! Turn off the running water when brushing your teeth or shaving. Only run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads.
