Water for the Environment

In Your Home, You Can Save Water

Here are a few things you can do at home to protect Florida's most precious natural resource: water.

INSTALL A FAUCET AERATOR
Cut your faucet water use by 30 percent! Faucet aerators are inexpensive and easily attach to most sink faucets.
UPGRADE YOUR THRONE
Flush less water and save money on your water bill when you upgrade to a high-efficiency toilet.
EACH DROP COUNTS
Be mindful of your water usage. Turn off water when brushing your teeth and take shorter showers. Use dishwashers and washing machines for full loads only.
CHECK FOR LEAKS
Most homes have an outdoor meter that indicates when water is being used. Turn off all water and check the meter to see if water is flowing. If so, investigate and repair.
GET A FREE ENERGY AUDIT
Did you know that saving water saves energy? Many utility companies offer free energy audits to help you save energy, water, and money.
