A leaky toilet can waste 20,000 gallons of water a year. Check for a toilet leak by putting dye or food coloring into the tank; if color appears in the bowl without flushing, there is a leak that should be repaired.
Just one faucet with a constant drip can leak up to 10,000 gallons a year. A wrench and plumbing tape can help fix most leaks if you can DIY, or you can hire a plumber to check for and repair faucet leaks.

They use 20% less water than the current Federal standard and significantly less than older toilets. Most major retailers provide WaterSense® toilet options for a reasonable cost.
Older models are less energy efficient. No matter what's cooking, stovetops and ovens consume a lot of energy. A new, energy-efficient model will last longer and help reduce energy bills.
Using the clothes dryer with only full (or near full) loads of laundry saves substantial amounts of energy.
By leaving the water running, enormous amounts of (often heated) water simply run down the drain, wasting both energy and water.
This helps avoid energy waste. Locate the water heater breaker in the electrical panel or turn it off at the unit.
