According to WaterSense, an EPA partnership program, annual household leaks waste 1 trillion gallons nationwide which is equivalent to water use in over 11 million homes. You can check for leaks a few different ways according to WaterSense:
- Take a look at your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If there is a change, you likely have a leak.
- See if your toilet is leaking by putting food coloring in the tank. After 15 minutes check the bowl, if the color shows in the bowl you have a leak.
Check out these tips and tricks to fix and prevent leaks or other wasted water.
