Celebrated in March of each year, Fix-A-Leak Week encourages every day Americans to play a role in decreasing water waste by checking fixtures and making water conscious decisions throughout their daily lives.
Did you know? Leaks contribute to over 1 trillion gallons of water lost in the US every year. Yikes!
Check out our infographic and help spread the word on leaks.
Join us in our quest to hunt down the drips and start saving with these 8 leak detection tips:
1.) Check your water pressure. Excessive pressure (more than 80 psi) can increase the chance of leaks.
2.) Inspect basement crawl spaces for hidden leaks. Even small leaks here can cause devastating structural damage.
3.) If you have a swimming pool, monitor the water line as it is notorious for leaks. Not only will you save on water, you’ll save on chemicals too!
4.) Inspect your property for leaks quarterly while performing preventative maintenance. Be sure to also check laundry rooms for leaks, as well as hose bibs for drips.
5.) Check your property for wet spots and alligatored pavement. These are common signs of an underground leak.
6.) For larger properties, perform a daily tour through vacant units to check for running faucets or toilets.
7.) Inspect your irrigation system frequently for broken heads, leaks and exposed lines.
8.) Replace outdated fixtures with EPA WaterSense approved fixtures to maximize conservation and performance.
