Use it. Enjoy it. Just don’t waste it.
One of the best ways to save water in the summer irrigation season is to make sure your sprinklers aren't misbehaving. Cycle through your irrigation zones every so often to make sure you don't have any broken or leaning sprinkler heads. And that they're spraying in the right direction, not into the street or sidewalk.
Not every home has leaks, but the ones that do can waste a lot of water. The EPA estimates that about 10% of water bills across the country could be reduced by addressing leaks. Pro Tip: Use your water meter to see if your house has a leak. Check the indoor water saving tips section on our site to learn how.
