Indoor Water Conservation Tips

  • Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator to avoid running the water for a glass of cold water.
  • Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth.
  • Fix even the smallest leaks. A leaking faucet dripping 24 drips per minute wastes 3.5 gallons per day.
  • Check your toilets for leaks with free toilet test strips. Call 970-927-9013 and we will get you some test strips. A leaking toilet can really increase your water bill.
