The EPA’s water saving awareness program, WaterSense, sponsors a campaign called Fix a Leak Week in March of each year. Their goal: to remind people to check their household plumbing fixtures for leaks. Awareness of this issue not only helps save the planet and conserve water, but can also save you money.
Leaks may be relatively insignificant on their own, but added up through an entire home’s worth of plumbing, across several days, months, or years can become a huge issue.
Some Facts on Leaks:
- Leaks can account for, on average, 10,000 gallons of water wasted in the home every year, which is enough to fill a backyard swimming pool.
- Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
- Common types of leaks found in the home include leaking toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. All are easily correctable.
- Fixing household water leaks can save homeowners more than 10 percent on their water bills.
Fixing leaks might seem like a trivial issue, but they can be quite stubborn. In particular, older plumbing can be seriously damaged if leak repair is attempted without the proper knowledge or training. ClearView professionals will ensure that your leaks are fixed properly and professionally every time.
You don’t need to wait until March or Fix a Leak Week to check your home for leaks. The sooner you identify problems with your home plumbing the sooner ClearView can solve them for you. Tightening up leaks in your home can result in a dramatic savings of water… and money.
