Water Conservation Tips
WATCH FOR LEAKS – HAVE THEM REPAIRED
A dripping faucet is more than annoying...it is expensive. Even small leaks can waste significant amounts of water. Hot water leaks are a waste of water and of the energy used to heat the water.
Leaks inside the toilet can waste up to 300 gallons of water a day. Toilet leaks can be detected by adding a few drops of food coloring to water in the toilet tank. If the colored water appears in the bowl, the toilet is leaking.
If you have a leaking faucet or toilet, please report it right away to your community center. If you hear water running in home and there is no water being used or consumed by your family, please report immediately to your community center.
HOW TO SAVE WATER IN THE BATHROOM
Do not let the faucet flow while brushing your teeth or shaving. Use a glass of water for rinsing teeth.
Take showers instead of tub baths. Limit showers to five (5) minutes. A full tub requires about 70 gallons of water; a shower of less than five (5) minutes uses about 12-20 gallons. A savings of about 1000 gallons per month.
Avoid using your toilet for a wastebasket or ashtray. Extra flushes waste water and money.
Do not let hot water run continuously when you shave. Close the drain and fill the basin with water instead.
If the toilet handle frequently sticks in the flush position letting water run constantly, report to your property management team immediately! A running toilet is very expensive and results in usage of 300 gallons per day.
HOW TO SAVE WATER IN THE KITCHEN AND LAUNDRY
Refrigerate a bottle of drinking water instead of letting a faucet flow until the water is cold enough to drink.
Use a dishpan or plug the sink for washing and rinsing dishes.
Do not use running water to thaw meat or other frozen foods. Defrost food overnight in the refrigerator, or use the defrost setting on your microwave.
Energy efficient appliances are usually water efficient too.
A full dishwasher is more water efficient than washing the same load by hand. If you choose to wash dishes by hand, fill a pan with hot water for rinsing. Don’t let hot water run continuously.
Only run your dishwasher when it is full in order to make the best use of water, energy, and detergent.
Cut down on the amount of rinsing you do before loading the dishwasher. Most modern dishwashers do an excellent job of cleaning dishes, pots, and pans all by themselves.
Dishwashers use as much as 25 gallons per cycle.
Clothes washers can use as much as 30-35 gallons of water per cycle.
Wait until you have a full load of laundry before running the machine to save both water and energy. If you can't wait for a full load, use the right water level to match the size of the load. Use as low a water temperature as possible for the wash cycle of your clothes. Use cold water for all rinse cycles.

The next set of homes we will be visiting are: 601-635 Maxwell and 200-227 Nellis the week of September 18th and September 22nd.
We will begin every other week mowing this month. Please check the community calendar to see when your scheduled day is. Also, a round of pre-emergent treatment will be added to all the flower beds in September.
