Stuck at Home for Weeks? Time to Fix a Leak!

With household water leaks found in an estimated 11 million homes, leaks can waste nearly 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency observed national Fix a Leak Week from March 16-22, but homeowners who are staying close to home during the COVID-19 emergency might use that time to hunt down water leaks in their homes. Finding and fixing easily corrected household water leaks from toilets, faucets, showerheads, and outdoor spigots and sprinkler systems, can save you about 10% on your water bills.
