Conservation

Most leaks result from worn washers in household faucets and shower heads. These fixtures should be checked periodically for even the smallest leaks. Repairing this type of leak is as easy as replacing the washer or ‘o' ring.

The toilet is one of the most common water wasters but its leaks tend to be harder to notice than faucet leaks. Most toilet leaks occur at the overflow pipe, flapper valve or at the plunger ball inside the tank. Although you may not see or hear water running, your toilet may have a silent leak. Drop a little food coloring in the tank and wait approximately 15 minutes, if it appears in the bowl, you have a silent leak. Also the water level in the tank should come up to about a half inch or so below the overflow pipe.
