Looking for the perfect gift to give this holiday season? Try a high-efficiency toilet for a thoughtful yet practical option for anyone on your list. Replacing inefficient toilets with a WaterSense labeled, high efficiency, model can save 13,000 gallons of water a year - now that’s a gift that keeps on giving! For additional water-saving tips, visit: srcity.org/WaterSmart.
Already have a high efficiency toilet but want to check for leaks? Place a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank, wait 15 minutes, if the bowl changes color you have a leak. If it doesn't, you can rest easy knowing you don't have a leaky toilet. If you do have a leak, fixing it is usually as simple as installing a new flapper and can save you hundreds of gallons of water a year. Santa Rosa Water even offers FREE dye tabs and toilet flappers to help you save.
