Tips to Lower your Water Bill

*Use your dishwasher. When filled properly it uses less water then hand washing.
*Don't pre-wash your dishes.
*Only run the dishwasher when it is full.
*Install faucet aerators. This screws onto the bottom of your faucet to reduce water flow.
*Keep drinking water in the fridge then it is already cold and you don't have to wait to let the water get cold.
*Use a low-flow shower head.
*Take showers instead of baths.
*Shorten your shower time.
*Turn off water while brushing your teeth.
*Check sinks and toilets for leaks.
*Wear your clothes more than once.
*Wash only full loads of laundry.
*Collect rain water for plants.
*If you have a wading pool for your kids, instead of dumping the water when it gets yucky use this water for your garden and flowers.

Feel free to share any other suggestions.
