- Running the dishwasher or washing machine when they are only half full uses just as much water as full loads.
- Itís a good idea to replace dishwasher and clothes washer hoses every five years. Hoses donít last forever and can create devastating damage - and waste lots of water - if they fail.
- Every home, apartment, and business has a master valve that controls water service. Locate your master valve so you can find it in an emergency. Consider turning it off if you are going out of town. That way, drips or leaks wonít surprise you when you return.
- If just one out of every 10 US homes upgraded to water-efficient fixtures, more than 120 billion gallons of water and more than $800 million would be saved annually.
