Fix Leaks, Install a Smart Timer to Keep Saving Water

Checking for and fixing leaks can achieve significant water savings. If you’ve experienced an increase in the amount of water used on your billing statement with no explanation, have a plumbing fixture that runs and doesn’t stop or have water gathering in specific locations, you might have a leak. Instructions for how to determine if you have a leak can be found in Mesa Water’s 2016 Water Quality Report, available from our office or downloadable at MesaWater.org/water-quality.

Water conservation practices have largely focused on reducing water waste and improving efficiencies. Outdoor watering schedules have become the new standard and many residents and business owners have made lasting changes. One of the best available tools to help save water and prevent runoff is the smart timer that waters according to weather conditions and only when your landscape needs it. Rebates are available to offset the costs of the device and information can be found at MesaWater.org/rebates.
