How Are You Saving 25%?
Bucket in the Shower
I bought a bucket at the dollar store and put it in my shower so that when I am waiting for it to get hot, I catch all that precious water. Then I use it for animals and plants. - Brenda, Martinez
Save Water From The Washing Machine
I try to keep the water separated by cycle - wash and rinse. We use the wash water to flush the toilets and the rinse water to water the outdoor potted plants. - Wayne, Concord
Air Conditioner Produces Water
I've attached a tube to the AC condensation tube and let it drip into a large bin with a bucket inside. On hot days when the AC is blasting, I fill the entire bin - about 6 gallons worth!! -- Kristin,
Use a Bucket To Save Dish Washing Water
I figured out that I could save the water from rinsing dishes and washing produce by putting a big bowl in the bottom of the sink and using that water for my garden. - Valerie, Alamo
We have replaced two toilets with about one gallon per flush toilets. We don't flush after each pee. - John, Pittsburg
Water Less Often
I cut the watering days this summer from 2 days per week to to 1 day per week for my landscape and it is doing just fine. - Chris, Martinez
