Sprung a Leak? Tighten Up On Leaks
Leak Detection - Toilets
Just because you don't see any water doesn't mean that there isn't a leak. A toilet can fool you. Listen to it. Do you hear running water? Jiggle the handle. Check the flapper. Just don't let it run! Your toilet can be the biggest water waster in your home, wasting up to 1,440 gallons per day, or one gallon per minute. And that's one gallon too much.
Faucets and Sinks
Drip! Drip! Drip! It'll drive you nuts. That small, little irritation keeping you up all night will never go away unless you fix it. So fix it now before it becomes a problem. Do it yourself or call a plumber. Water is being wasted and your money is going down the drain. Even a small drip can waste as much as 170 gallons of water each day, or 5,000 gallons per month.
Call 210-704-SAVE for help if you think there's a leak between your water main and your house. SAWS will adjust your bill if you detect an underground leak and repair it. Your homeowner's insurance may even cover pipe leaks and water damage.
