Performing inspections and regular maintenance of your indoor/outdoor plumbing & irrigation is the best practice in saving water. So while doing your "Spring Cleaning" also check your plumbing and irrigation for breaks or leaks around seals, faucets and hose bibs.
Did you know a faucet that drips just once per second wastes 27,000 gallons annually? This is the equivalent of 270+ loads of laundry per year for an average household! By installing low flow faucets or aerators on all the faucets, low flow shower heads and high efficiency toilets you could save 1.2-19 gallons per day! By doing so you might qualify for a government issued rebate (check Save Our Water Rebates to see if you’re eligible)
