Lawn and Garden
-Water your lawn and back garden on cool days when needed only. If possible use automatic sprinklers.
-Plant native plants that are water efficient and don't require a lot of watering. Use mulch around plantation to save moisture.
-Preserve moisture by growing grass tall during hot weather.
-Check irrigation systems for leaks. Contact your local Plumber Washington DC if you require professional assistance in repairing and replacing leaky sprinkle heads and other faulty parts of the irrigation system.
-Cover swimming pools when not in use to slow down the evaporation process.
-Don't overfill pool to avoid splashing and spilling
-Check pool and filtration system for signs of leaks. Early leak detection will save about 1,000 gallons of water, otherwise wasted through undetected pool leaks.
Rinse the car once, then wash from a bucket of soap water, and rinse again.
