Tucson Water has a popular program to help residential customers manage their water use: the Zanjero Program (Zahn-HAIR-oh, or water manager). Customers can request a free individualized survey of home water use with tips and information on how to lower water use and water bills.
Tucson Water Zanjeros have extensive training in indoor and outdoor water conservation and related water issues. A Zanjero audit includes checking for leaks, measuring flow rates of showerheads and faucets, looking for special water uses such as spas, pools, or misting systems, and analyzing the efficiency of the irrigation system. If appropriate, new low-flow fixtures, faucet aerators, or other water-saving devices are installed. The resident receives the results of the analysis, along with information to help decrease water use and water bills.
