Winter Conservation Tips

While your irrigation system is off and plants are dormant, winter is the time to look at indoor water use. Take a day to look at your fixtures, do any of them need to be upgraded to reduce water waste or fix drips? Check your toilet with a dye tablet to ensure it doesn’t have a silent leak.

Help avoid costly leaks in cold weather:

  • Check for leaks after each thaw
  • Drip sinks that are on outer walls. Catch the drips in a large bowl or pan to use for water indoor plants or cooking.
  • Know where the main water shut off is in your home
  • Insulate expose pipes
