Focus on Water

Water Wasted In One Month From Leaks  

 

Leaks

Most people think that water leaks are someone else’s problem,

until they check!  Water leaks inside your home can account for as

much as 10% of your water bill, and waste 50 cents or more a day

if the source is a hot water tap.  Faucet leaks are obvious, but be sure

to check seldom used taps in the basement or outside the house.

If you notice a drop in your water pressure, any unusual wet areas

or bubbling water in your yard, call to have it checked for a leak.

Leaks in your service line may account for a large loss in water supply;

sometimes as much as 50%.
