Water Saving Tips
- Check toilets for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank at the back. If after 10 minutes, color shows up in the bowl before flushing, it may be time to replace the flapper.
- If your shower fills a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, replace the showerhead with a water-efficient model. They're inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month.
- Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 25 gallons a month.

For example, filtering home tap water or well water can decrease exposure to numerous known or suspected carcinogens or endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”
