As we write this, we are in the middle of Fix a Leak Week! Held March 14-20 this year, this week is promoted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
According to the Fix a Leak Week webpage, “Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide.” This week is an important time to focus on fixing leaks in plumbing fixtures and irrigation system in the home. Check out the below graphic from EPA that we got from the Fix a Leak Week webpage!
We have a couple of resources to help you out. 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. We also have the AWWA Free Water Audit Software© to help water utilities control water loss. And, of course, check out DrinkTap's Household Leaks webpage.
