The average Canadian uses 343 litres of water at home each day! Follow these tips to conserve water and protect water quality.

  • Collect rainwater in a rain barrel to irrigate your garden, water your lawn, wash your car, wash your windows or hose down the driveway
  • Renovating or replacing appliances? Choose low flow toilets, aerator taps and water saving washing machines and dishwashers.
  • Fill it up! Use less water with a full load in your dishwasher and washing machine.
  • Fill a 2L plastic bottle with water and place it in your toilet tank and flush 2 litres less water each time. 
  • Replacing your water heater? Consider a tank-less model that heats hot water on demand. 
  • What's your Water Footprint? Beyond your daily shower, flushing the toilet and washing your clothes, what about the volume of water that it took to grow the cotton in your new pair of jean? Calculate your Water Footprint and see what you can do to save more water.
