Fix a Leak Week
Back to News
Fix a Leak Week is March 18 - 24
The EPA reminds us that the average American family can waste more than 11,000 gallons of water each year through running toilets, leaking faucets and other household leaks. More than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year.
During Fix a Leak Week, you can make a difference...
• check toilets for silent leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank and see if the color appears in the bowl before you flush;
• check other indoor plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and spigots for leaks too;
• twist and tighten pipe connections; and
• replace fixtures if necessary with those with the WaterSense label, which signifies the product is certified to save water and perform well.
