Water Leaking 101


Unknown water leaks are a major cause of wasted water and money for households all over the country.

Water leaks can be found in a dripping faucet, a constantly running toilet, phantom toilet flushing, and other leaking valves around the home.

According to the EPA the average household water leaks account for over 10,000 gallons of wasted water each year.  Just to give you perspective, that is enough water for about 270 loads of laundry.

Be sure to have any thing with a leak repaired and/or replaced to save you money in the long term and to eliminate wasted water.

Don’t forget outside water drips as well such as the spigot for the garden hose. Sprinkler system repairs are also a must during the spring to prevent even more wasted water.
