Is your water bill too high?

Like everything else, the cost of water has gone up over the last several years. I’m always surprised at how much water costs when I open the bill. Here’s some information about how you can save on water.

Consider replacing your dishwasher:

Dishwashers manufactured before 1994 use about 14 gallons per wash. In contrast, newer models use about 3 gallons per wash. Hand washing does not save money; depending on how you wash, you could use between 13 to 27 gallons per hand wash.

Consider replacing your toilet:

  • Toilets manufactured before 1982 Use 5 to 7 gallons per flush.
  • Toilets manufactured between 1982 and 1992 use 3.5 gallons per flush
  • Toilets manufactured Between 1993 and now use 1.1 to 1.6 gallons per flush


CONSIDER backing off your lawn watering schedule in the spring and fall.

  • Most experts recommend watering every other day in the spring and fall to encourage root growth while reducing water usage.
