Go for the Water-Saving Gold

The Tokyo Summer Games may be over, but there are still some Olympic-size savings to be had on your monthly water bill.


Thanks to ample rainfall in late spring and mid-summer, many thirsty landscapes were quenched and drenched — making it possible to turn off your irrigation system. But that’s not the only reason to turn it off.

Every time your irrigation system runs it uses 2,000 gallons of water. That may not sound like a lot. But with tiered pricing, the more water you use, the more you pay per gallon. So running your sprinklers just once a week can DOUBLE your water bill. Watering 2-3 times per week could make your bill SIX TIMES HIGHER!

Hand-watering is always the most efficient way to save water and money. You can further reduce your water use by using our WaterSaver Coupons to replace water-guzzling grass.
