We all have a part to play to help save our water. However, some might be bigger than others. To help you get started we've pulled together some resources for key players.
You are pretty influential when it comes to anything water related. Homeowners rely on you to fix leaks, install toilets, faucets, water heaters, and more. Do your part by recognizing and encouraging homeowners to install water efficient appliances, some of which even qualify for rebates!
- Educate residents on the City's water use portal - AquaHawk. Residents can monitor their water usage, set alerts, and helps detect leaks. To learn more about AquaHawk or to sign a customer up, please visit our AquaHawk information page.
- Feel free to leave an AquaHawk Flyer (PDF) with your customer.
- Old toilets can use up to 6 gallons of water per flush! Help your customers save water by installing a high-efficiency toilet. Keep an eye out for toilet rebates as well. In 2016 Save Our Water issued 60,000 rebates up to $100 for installing high-efficiency toilets. Browse high-efficiency toilets and remember to look for the WaterSense labels on the product's packaging on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website.
- Green Plumbers is an innovative, national marketing and brand overlay program that assists plumbers in understanding their role in the environment and public health.
