Water Saver Kits
Doing more with less water makes good sense. You don’t have to feel deprived to save water; you just need to make sensible choices that incrementally reduce the amount of water you need to do everyday tasks.
Installing low-flow devices on ordinary household fixtures is a painless way to reduce the amount of water you use.
To help people make wise water choices, DWM’s Office of Water Efficiency (OWE) makes Water Saver Kits available to its water customers. Each kit contains a 1.5 gallon per minute low-flow showerhead, a 1.5 gallon per minute kitchen faucet aerator, two 1 gallon per minute bathroom sink aerators and toilet leak detection tablets. The kit bag is also a water-saving tool: the empty bag serves as a flow measuring device. To measure the flow of your current water fixtures, place the empty bag around the sink faucet or showerhead, turn on the water full blast for 5 seconds, turn off the water, and check the bag to see how much water is in the bag. The markings on the bag indicate flow in terms of gallons per minute.
If you’d like to verify how much water you are saving, perform the same test after you’ve installed the low-flow fixtures. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the results.
Water Saver kits are available to City of Atlanta water customers at all of the City’s fire stations. Make sure you bring documentation verifying your address to your local fire station. Here is a list of fire stations
