Indoor Conservation

Install Water Saving Shower Heads

Low-flow showerheads can deliver anywhere from .5 to 2.5 gallons of water per minute. Older showerheads use 5-8 gallons per minute. Replace old showerheads and limit showers to five minutes or less.

Install Low Flow Toilets

Ultra-low flow toilets use 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Older toilets use 3.5 - 5 gallons per flush. Look for the WaterSense® label.

Check all Faucets, Pipes and Toilets Periodically for Leaks

A faucet drip or invisible leak in the toilet can add up to 15 gallons of water a day. Check for toilet leaks by removing the toilet tank cover and drip 10 drops of food coloring into the tank. Wait 15 minutes and check for color in the toilet bowl. If you see any color, your toilet has a leak. Check the toilet flapper periodically to make sure it has a tight fit.


KPUD provides 6 simple steps to conduct and reduce your water use, including a activity chart using typical gallon use for different appliances.
