Participants Conservation Toolbag

At each event the Intermountain Section AWWA will have a Water Week booth stocked with all the information shown above.  Also, we will be handing out Conservation Toolbags which participants will be able to check their in-home conservation practices.  Through checking for leaks, monitoring their showers and cutting down on the amount of water for each flush of the toilet we estimate that the participants will save over 100s Million Gallons per Year!  Now that is a real savings!

Leak Detection Dye Tablets

Nontoxic blue dye indicates within minutes if a simple repair can help save water. Just drop one tablet into the toilet tank.  Instructions printed on attached card.
Water Savings: up to 200 gallons per daya

 

Shower Flow Meter Bag

Helps determine the flow or showerheads and faucets.  Showers or faucets that flow at 2.5 gallons per minute are inefficient and can be easily replaced. A low flow shower head can reduce water usage by as much as 27.5 gallons for that same shower.  Instruction printed on the bag.
Water savings: up to 27.5 gallons per shower

Toilet Tank Water Saving Bank

Fill water displacement bag with water and simply hang in the toilet tank to save water with every flush.  Instructions printed on bag.
Water savings:  .8 gallons per flush  (Average households flush 5 times per day per person)
