Are Faucet & Toilet Leaks Costing You Big?

You probably don't think about it much, but that dripping faucet or that running toilet could be costing you BIG in the long run. I figured I would do a quick blog on this very underrated subject to help raise awareness to all you homeowners out there, below is a table given by the American Water Works Association on estimated water loss and how much it might cost you.
Most leaks result from worn washers in household faucets and shower heads. These faucets, as well as seldom-used taps in the basement or storage rooms, should be checked periodically. Faucet leaks are usually caused by worn washers or "O" rings (for washerless faucets).

The toilet is one of the most common water wasters but its leaks tend to be less noticeable than faucet leaks. To determine if your toilet is leaking, look at the toilet bowl after the tank has stopped filling. If water is still running into the bowl, or if water can be heard running, your toilet is leaking. Most toilet leaks occur at the overflow pipe or at the plunger ball inside the tank. Although water may not be seen or heard running, your toilet may have a silent leak. To test for a silent leak, drop a little food coloring into the tank. DO NOT FLUSH. Wait for about 10 minutes. If the food coloring appears in the toilet bowl, your toilet has a silent leak. It is probably located in or around the plunger ball or flapper valve at the bottom of the tank.

Unseen or unfixed leaks can drip hundreds, even thousands of gallons wastefully down the drain. A little detective work several times a year can catch these water thieves in the act and put them out of circulation. If you think something isn't right with your plumbing and you'd like to have a professional inspect your plumbing and suggest ways to improve water conservation and savings, give Environmental a call and we'd be glad to help you out!
