Smart Water Use 

We are constantly looking for ways to ensure water is available for future generations. Part of that commitment includes helping our customers understand what they can do to help. We do that in a variety of ways: in customer bills, in our newsletters, and here on our website.

Water Use Calculator

To use less water, it’s helpful to know how much you’re using and where. Liberty is a member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency.

Check out their online water calculator that allows you to input water use information specific to your household and offers tips on where you can save water and energy based on that data.

Conserve Water, Save on Your Bill

We want to help you save. A few small steps could add up to big savings.

Look for leaks - Leaks are sneaky and can waste a whole lot of water over a short period of time, adding up to wasted money. Check faucets, toilets and showerheads to see if there is opportunity for you to save. 

Invest in smart tools - Smart thermostats, smart appliances and smart irrigation controllers all use technology to help you save.

Look for labels - When buying appliances, water heaters, electronics, light bulbs, toilets, faucet, shower heads, and more, look for ENERGY STAR® and WaterSense labels. Items with these labels are certified by the EPA to use less and can save you significant money on your utility bills.

Did You Know?

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day?! Leaks are sneaky and can waste a whole lot of water over a short period of time, adding up to a lot of wasted money.

Below are some fixes to common leaks around the house. If these simple fixes do not work, or you are not comfortable fixing them yourself, call a trusted handyman or licensed plumber to get the job done.

  • The Test: Turn the faucet on then all the way off. If it's still dripping or running, there could be a leak.

    Possible Solution: Worn out faucet washers and gaskets frequently cause leaks.
    This is another hardware store trip. Ask them how to safely change washers.
    Remember to turn off the water first.

  • The Test: Turn the faucet on then all the way off.
    If it's still dripping or running, there could be a leak. Mineral build up on the outside of the faucet could also indicate a leak.
    Possible Solution: Make sure there is a tight connection between the pipe stem and showerhead by using pipe tape to secure it.
    For more complicated valve leaks that drip when the water is turned off, contact a handyman or plumber.

  • The Test: Place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait 15 minutes, if there’s color in the toilet bowl, you have a leak.
    Remember to flush immediately after the test to avoid dying your toilet.
    Possible Solution: Common reason for a leak is an old or worn out toilet flapper, or “valve seal.”
    Head to your local hardware store with your old flapper to fix this leak.

    • Change landscaping irrigation timers with the seasons.
    • Don’t drowned you plants! Shut off automatic watering systems when it rains.
    • Use faucet aerators that are 1.5 GPM or lower.
    • Skip your next watering cycle after a rain event. Your plants will thank you.
    • Reduce evaporation by mulching your landscaping and potted plants.
    • Check hoses, connectors and spigots regularly. Replace them when necessary.
    • Check for leaks around the house once a month.
    • Only do full loads of dishes when running the dishwasher.
    • Reuse clean household water by watering potted plants with it.
    • Wash produce in a pan instead of under running water.
    • Take shorter showers.
    • Fill the sink when washing dishes instead of letting the water run.
    • Turn the water off when you’re not actively using it.
    • Only fill the bath tub up a third of the way.
