Save money on water by doing simple things like always running full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher. Some people in dessert areas route the hoses of their washing machines to the outside so they can reuse that water.

 

Keep an eye on your water meter.  If a pipe breaks between your home and the front of the street, you are responsible for the lost water.  You could be charged hundreds of dollars.  All plumbing eventually fails, and it is not covered by insurance.  Insurance companies do not cover your plumbing.  You must do the maintenance and be mindful of what is happening with the water coming in and out of your home.
