Free Water-Saving Devices for Residents

Water-saving devices are simple to install and, while they are small in size, can lead to significant water conservation savings. Together, installing one faucet aerator and one high-efficiency showerhead can result in an average of 14,000 gallons per year in savings. Standard toilet tank repair parts are also provided. 

Receive water-saving devices when you schedule a FREE Water-Wise Evaluation by calling (415) 551-4730.

You can also pick up devices at our Customer Service office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday at 525 Golden Gate Avenue, 1st Floor, San Francisco, CA 94102. A copy of the water bill or proof of San Francisco residency is required.

We offer the following FREE water-saving devices, while supplies last:
