Not As Cheap But Still Worthwhile Conservation Tips

  • Replace toilets with new, water-saving models, including dual-flush systems.
     
  • Invest in a water-efficient front-loading washing machine. Front-loaders can reduce your usage by 40 percent per load. (You’ll save on energy, too.)
     
  • Switch to on-demand water heaters close to your showers and kitchen sink.
     
  • If you purchase a top-loading machine, get one with a suds-saver. It enables you to reuse most of the sudsy wash water for a second load.
     
  • Avoid fountains and pools that don’t have recirculating pumps.
