  1. Check for leaks. Dripping faucets can waste as much as 2,700 gallons of water per year. Leaky toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.
  2. You can checkyour toilets for leaks by placing a drop of food coloring into your toilet's tank. Don't flush. Check the water bowl in 15 minutes. If the color flows into your toilet bowl, there is probably a leak.
  3. Run dishwashers and clothes washers only when full. Use the load-size selector.
  4. Replace your showerhead with a water-efficient model. Save about 500 gallons of water per year.
  5. Turn the water off when brushing your teeth. Rinse with a glass of water. Save up to four gallons of water each time.
  6. Install a water displacement device in your toilet's tank. (A plastic bag/bottle filled with water to reduce the amount of water and still provide enough to flush.
  7. If you wash dishes by hand, turn the water off and on when rinsing rather than letting it run.
  8. Soak pans rather than scrubbing them while the water is running.
  9. Rinse your vegetables in a pan of cold water.
