Fix a Leak Week is next week!

posted on

March 16-22 marks this year’s Fix a Leak Week. Promoted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program, this week focuses on helping consumers be aware of leaks in plumbing fixtures and irrigation system in the home. Why is this important? According to the Fix a Leak Week website, “Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide.”

What part can you play in saving our precious water supply? We have some great resources available to help in determining water wasted from leaks. For starters, our Drip Calculator can help estimate water waste and to learn how much water could be saved. This feature can calculate waste for both a dripping faucet and a fast running faucet. Make sure to check out this online tool!
