How to Save Water?

Save WaterHow can Sacramento help save water? Have you seen Folsom Lake lately? its at 20% of normal. That means water skiing is like trying to snorkel in your bath tub…..it works but it isn’t much fun. We still have hope for the beginning of 2014 for more rain. As we stand right now cities like Folsom and Granite Bay are already implementing water saving measures. So home owners be ready. Here are some simple ideas we can all do to help save water and not get fined by our city water companies.

  • Simple, inexpensive aerators
  • Installing new technology water saving faucets
  • Foot/knee controls so that users can turn water on and off without using their hands
  • Sensor-activated controls that actually save water
  • Take shorter showers to reduce water use
  • Install a low-flow shower head, insulate hot water pipes to minimize heat loss
  • Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden
  • Check your water meter for water lose (30 min check running no water)
