Water Use in Your Home

Reducing water loss, waste, or use in and around your home requires a simple short-term investment in time and money, which will result in immediate and long-term savings for you. Water conservation does not mean you have to give up convenience or comfort – just be water-wise by reducing your use when possible, retrofitting existing taps, toilets and appliances, and investing in water and energy-efficient options if you are replacing water using devices within your home.
