Use Your Water Wisely

A leaky faucet that drips at a rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water per year. Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. Leaky faucets can be corrected by checking faucet washers and gaskets for wear and tear and replacing them if necessary. Fixing leaky faucets can save more than 10 percent on your water bill.

Leaving the faucet run while teeth brushing, according to EPA estimates, wastes two gallons per day on average, resulting in an estimated 600 million gallons wasted in the US during daily teeth brushing alone. To save water, do not run the faucet continually while brushing your teeth.

A silent toilet leak can waste several thousand gallons of water each year. To discover if your toilet leaks:

  • lift the lid off your toilet tank;

  • place 3-4 drops of food coloring into the tank;

  • do not flush or disturb the toilet for one to two hours; and,

  • after one to two hours, observe the toilet bowl. If the color you placed in the tank shows up in the bowl, you have a leak.

To repair toilet leaks, replacement valves or kits are available at your local hardware store. Also, consider replacing any old toilets with more efficient models that use 1.6 gallons of water, or less, per flush.

Wise water usage saves you money!
