Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 10 percent of American homes leak 90 gallons or more of water every day?
Over a year, that could be up to 10,000 gallons! That would be enough to wash 270 loads of laundry! Not to mention that it could cost up to $100…money literally down the drain!
How do you find a leak?
When looking for hidden leaks, check out all the accessible plumbing in your home – under the sink, behind the toilet, around the hot water heater and washing machine. Carefully inspect the supply lines for drips and keep an eye out for small puddles on the floor. Don’t forget to check on other appliances that sometimes get overlooked like whole home humidifiers and evaporative coolers.
Another way to discover a leak is to watch your water meter over a several hour period when you know you aren’t using any water in the house.
