Water Saving Tips

 
 Saving Water

 Indoors Tips:

There are many ways to save water inside; here are a few of the best ways to save lots of water. Of course, wise water habits can help too. For example, turn the water off when
brushing teeth, shorten your showers and sweep your driveway instead of hosing it.

Low Flow Toilet Rebates: Many older toilets use 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush. 

Fix Leaks & Drips: Drips and leaks in your home’s plumbing can consume hundreds of gallons of water and run up your water and wastewater costs. Usually, leaks and drips are simple to fix. Our free “how to” brochures make it easy to do it yourself.

  Fixing Leaks

Did you know? A faucet that drips once each second wastes 168 gallons of water a month. Leaking faucets are usually caused by worn washers. A toilet leak can waste up to 200 gallons per day. Leaking toilets are usually caused
by leaking flush valves and leaking fill valve.  Remember, fixing leaks saves you money on your water bill!.

                                                       Washer-type faucet
                                                       Ball-type
                                                 Sinks

                                                       Washerless-type faucet
                                                Toilets

                                                       Fill valve replacement

 

Landscaping    Outdoors Tips:

The recipe for a perfect landscape includes many ingredients such as plant choice and placement, lawn seed choices, fertilizer, mulches and water. Like any recipe the amount of each ingredient is critical to the final result and should be measured carefully.

 How much water is enough?
 While many native plants and water-wise species can thrive in this environment, most other
 plants and grasses need supplemental water to thrive in the dry summers. The watering
 season in Houston begins in the late spring. In many years supplemental water is not needed
 until late May and the need for supplemental water often ends in early October.
 During the watering season, weather is the best indicator of when and how much to water.

 Every situation is unique and the information presented here is intended to serve as a guide
to assist you in achieving your vision for your landscape. These guidelines can be applied in landscape concepts ranging from simple to sophisticated with as little equipment as a hose end timer, hose and sprinkler or with fully automated underground sprinkler and drip
 irrigation system.

    More Lawn Tips

  Consider using soaker hoses or a drip irrigation system for your vegetable garden, shrub and
  flower beds. Slow application of the proper amounts of water applied directly to the roots
  promotes healthy growth.

   When it rains, use the manual override or install a rain switch to turn off automatic sprinkler
   systems.

    Tools to Save By:

Sprinkler Timers: No matter how you water - using a sprinkler system, drip irrigation or a
                           hose-end sprinkler – you can get the convenience of a watering system       
                           that shuts itself off.   Hose-end timers and newer irrigation system timers                                  improve results and do the work while you play.

Soaker Hoses & Drip Systems:   Get to the root of the matter and put the water where it will
                              
                     do the most good.
