Picture 800 bottles of water in your mind. Now picture dumping them down the drain. That’s the amount of water that a “running” toilet can waste every day!
Conserving water is really about not wasting it. And leaks do exactly that, day-in and day-out, often without notice. In most homes there are leaks of some sort with water loss often accounting for up to 10 percent of the monthly bill.
Fix a Leak Week is a great time to take action on those leaks. Check for dripping faucets, running toilets, leaking hoses, broken irrigation heads, and wet spots inside kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
Water is our most precious resource so let’s use it wisely.
If you would like to have a repair kit for a leaking hose, or dye tablets to check for a running toilet, come by the Environmental Services Department office, 8203 Millennium Forest Drive, where we have a supply just for you.
