Dye tablets provide an easy way to check your toilets for leaks. Simply drop a tablet in the toilet tank and wait 15 minutes. If color appears in the toilet bowl, you have a leak.
Aerators reduce water flow through faucets and add air making the water bubbly. They are easy to install.
Shower timers save water by reminding you to keep your shower time short. The dial rotates to reset the five-minute hourglass.
You can save water and energy by switching to low-flow showerheads. Low-flow showerheads use 2.5 gallons per minute or less and still provide plenty of pressure. Northshore provides free showerheads (up to two per household) for our customers. If you would like a new showerhead, bring your old showerhead to our office between 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. If you are not sure how much water your current showerhead uses, call (425) 398-4400, ext 113 to have a shower flow-rate measurer mailed to your home.
Rain gauges help you keep track of rainfall so you can be efficient with your lawn watering.
Toilet Tank Bank
Use the toilet tank bank to displace water in the tank (back) of older toilets (pre 1993) and save .5 - .7 gallons per flush.
