It's Fix a Leak Week!

Did you know that the average household leak wastes 10,000 gallons of water each year? That’s enough water for 1.5 years of daily showers. Spring is a great time to look for leaks.

Looks for Leaks:

  • Identify toilet leaks: Placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak. (Be sure to flush immediately after the experiment to avoid staining the tank.) Watch the video.

  • Look for continuous leaks: If you’re not running water in the house and your meter is moving, you have a continuous leak. Learn how to read your water meter.

  • SPEAK UP! In the workplace: Leaks don’t just happen at home. If you see a faucet dripping, a toilet running or broken sprinkler heads, report it to the maintenance staff.
