The average water demand for a typical home in the Yucaipa Valley uses about 40% of the water indoors and about 60% of the water outdoors. Homeowners can significantly reduce the volume of water used indoors by following these easy tips:
- Use low-flow faucets, shower heads, reduced-flow toilet flushing equipment, and water saving appliances such as dish and clothes washers.
- Repair leaking faucets, toilets, and pumps.
- Use dishwashers and clothes washers only when fully loaded.
- Take short showers instead of baths and avoid letting faucets run unnecessarily.
- Wash your car only when necessary; use a bucket to save water. Alternatively, go to a commercial carwash that uses water efficiently and disposes of runoff properly.
Consider how you use water indoors to best use our water resources efficiently.
