If your water bill has suddenly increased, follow Lisa’s simple instructions on using your water meter as a leak detector.

Do-It-Yourself Repairs

On average, leaks account for 11,000 gallons of water wasted per household every year. That’s enough to fill a backyard swimming pool!

Common types of leaks found inside and outside the home include leaking toilet flappers, dripping faucets or showerheads, faulty outdoor spigots and broken sprinkler heads.

The good news: These are repairs most homeowners can make on their own. SAWS offers easy, step-by-step instructions on detecting leaks and making the necessary repairs, as well as directions for installing high efficiency showerheads and faucet aerators.

Fix a Leak Week, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program, encourages you to be proactive and check your plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks.
