  • Toilet flushing consumes nearly half of the daily household consumption using about 5-7 gallons per flush.
  • Check your toilets for leaks; a leak wastes more than 100 gallons of water per day.
  • If you think there is a leak, put a few drops of food coloring in the tank. If the bowl water shows color without flushing, there is a leak, and repairs are needed.
  • Most new toilets use about 3½ gallons per flush.
  • Toilet dams save about two gallons of water per flush.
  • Bathing usually consumes the second greatest quantity of water.
  • Taking a bath uses more water than taking an average shower.
  • Long showers waste five to ten gallons of water per day.
  • Install water-saving showerheads and don't turn the shower on until you are ready to step in.
  • Turn the water off while you are shaving, brushing your teeth, or washing your face.
  • Use an electric razor.
