Use a dye tablet to follow leaks through your toilet and measure the drips per minute of your shower for easy ways to save gallons of water. Get your hands on a variety of sprinklers to see where up to 60% of your household water use really goes. Don’t be a drip, drop by to help do your part so we can all have a wetter tomorrow!
