Free Water Saving Devices

Save water and save money with these free devices:

  • Faucet aerator for kitchen and bathroom
  • Low-flow showerhead
  • Hose nozzle
  • Toilet leak detection tablets

Pick up these items during business hours at the District Office, 7051 Dublin Blvd. You must live or work in the District service area. One of each device per household, while supplies last.

We no longer offer free "universal" toilet flappers because they do not always seal tightly. We recommend using the specific replacement flapper designed for your toilet. Replace flappers at least every three years to prevent a "running toilet," which can waste thousands of gallons of water.

Free Resources for Businesses

Request these free items for businesses from the DSRSD public information office: (925) 875-2282.
