How to Replace a Toilet Flapper
Executive Order B-29-15 mandates a 25% statewide water reduction. The State Water Resources Board has required Phelan Piñon Hills Community Services District (PPHCSD) customers reduce water use by 24% compared to 2013. PPHCSD is currently in Stage II of its Water Conservation Ordinance.

Look for ways you can use less water whenever possible and try some of following conservation tips.

Indoor Water Saving Tips
• Check all plumbing for leaks; a faucet dripping one drop per second can waste 2,700 gallons per year. A leaking toilet can waste up to 50 gallons of water a day.
• Keep showers short.
• Turn off water while brushing teeth or shaving.
• Wash only full loads in the clothes washer and dishwasher.
• Consider replacing older water-using appliances such as clothes washers with newer, more efficient models.  High efficiency clothes washers can save up to 30 gallons a load.
• In addition to new appliances, replace other water guzzling devices.  Change to low-flow shower heads and high efficiency toilets.

Water Smart Landscaping Tips
• Avoid evaporation. Schedule irrigation timers to water during evening and early morning hours.
• Adjust the irrigation schedule throughout the year as plant water requirements change.  Install a drip irrigation system to eliminate overspray, runoff, and evaporation.
• Convert spray sprinklers to water-efficient rotary sprinklers by installing MP Rotator nozzles.
• Consider replacing grass and non-native plant species with High Desert natives that can survive with little or no water after they’re established.  Find local sources of natives and Desert Friendly plants,
• Train your plants.  Water deeply and infrequently and the roots will follow!
• Graywater irrigation systems are legal in the County of San Bernardino and should be considered as a method of conservation.
