What is a Water-Wise HouseCall?
A Water-Wise HouseCall is a personalized program to help you use water more efficiently both inside and outside your home. By using less water, you are doing the right thing while lowering your water and sewer costs! With each Water-Wise HouseCall, a trained water efficiency professional will assess your current water usage by performing the following tasks:
- Visually inspect faucets, shower heads, toilets, and other water using apparatus for leaks.
- Provide free low-flow aerators and shower heads if needed.
- Share details about how to qualify for high-efficiency toilet and clothes washer rebates.
- Outline the best and most practical ways to maximize water savings.
- Test irrigation systems and look for leaks and broken sprinkler heads.
- Identify areas of the system that may need maintenance or upgrades.
- Discuss how soil types can affect watering needs.
- Provide an efficient irrigation schedule for your timer if you have one. We’ll even program the timer for you!
- Provide free low-flow hose-end nozzles if needed.
- Check your water meter and teach you how to read it, so you can monitor your water usage.
A typical Water-Wise HouseCall will take from 30 minutes to an hour. Once it is completed, you will receive information on your home's water using fixtures, appliances, and irrigation equipment.
