Water Conservation Tips

With the California Drought being in its fourth year, we all must work together to change the way we think about our daily water use & consumption. San Diego County’s Irrigation Agencies will be enforcing “Top Down” regulations, in order to curtail & control our monthly water usage, but it will the responsibility of individuals to make changes in their daily lives that will make the biggest impact on our future.

Below is a list of widely accepted Water Saving Tips & Tricks, which we’ve found to truly save large quantities of residential “potable” water… These Water Saving Tips can be found throughout the internet & are supported by local water groups & news outlets like the San Diego County Water Authority,, National Geographic & CNN.

  1. When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  2. If you drop ice on the floor, toss it on a plant instead of in the sink
  3. Water your garden early in the morning or in the evening when the weather is cooler. This saves 25 gallons each time.
  4. Opt for a garden of drought-tolerant plants
  5. Consider installing a higher-efficiency washing machine that does offer a setting that uses less water.
  6. Keep drinking water in the fridge, so you don’t have to run the tap while it cools
  7. Use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and patios. Doing so saves 8-18 gallons per minute.
  8. Full loads of laundry only. Your clothes can wait until they’ve got a full company of dirty laundry buddies.
  9. Avoid rinsing dishes before using your dishwasher. Dishwashers typically use less water than washing dishes by hand.
  10. Soak dirty pots and pans instead of running the water while you scrape them clean.
  11. Save water from boiling pasta and rinsing vegetables for watering plants
  12. Wash your car with a bucket, sponge, and hose with self-closing nozzle. It saves 8-18 gallons per minute.
  13. Use a broom, not a hose, to clean your deck or patio
  14. Mulch your trees and plants to reduce evaporation and keep the soil cool. This step saves 20-30 gallons each time you water (per 1,000 sq. ft.)
  15. Taking a five-minute shower instead of a 10-minute shower saves 25 gallons.
  16. Don’t run the water while brushing your teeth, washing your hands or shaving. You’ll save 10 gallons a day.
  17. Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the bowl without flushing, you’ve got a leak. A quick fix will save water.
