Saving water at a glance

  • Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth. This is a simple way to save precious water from disappearing down the drain.
  • Keep your showers short. Set a timer to four minutes or less.
  • Full load your washing machine and dishwasher before turning on and running a cycle.
  • Use the half flush function on your toilet.
  • Consider installing a rainwater tank to service the toilets and washing machine. You may be eligible for a rebate, check out our residential rainwater tank rebate program.
  • Upgrade tap fixtures and your showerhead to WELS star-rated water saving devices. The more stars, the greater the water savings.
