Arcadia Water Conservation Tips for HomeownersAs California continues to suffer from a severe drought, we ask all Californians to do their part and conserve water. We must protect the beautiful land we live on and water conservation is a must, especially in today’s trying times. We have gathered 7 water conservation tips for your convenience to help you start saving around the house:

  1. Are you one of the many homeowners who believes you must rinse your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher in order for them to come out clean? Despite popular belief, this is unnecessary and is a wasteful habit.
  2. Likewise, many people assume hand washing their dishes will save more water than their dishwasher, however, this is not true. As long as you only use your dish washer for full loads, you will conserve more water.
  3. Whenever you wash your clothes, be sure to only wash full loads for efficient water usage.
  4. If you are able to, you may want to replace all of your old appliances with energy-efficient appliances that use water efficiently. This includes faucets, sinks, toilets, shower heads, clothes washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and anything else you can think of.
  5. Did you know that each minute you reduce from your shower time makes a significant impact on the wellbeing of the environment? Refrain from running the water while you shave. This will save about 2-3 minutes of shower time, bettering California.
  6. Be sure to check for leaks around the house on a regular basis. Leaks can unknowingly waste hundreds of gallons of water.
  7. Refrain from running the water in all occasions, unless completely necessary. This includes when you brush your teeth and wash your face.
