It’s the first day of spring — and the first day of fix a leak week! What better way to celebrate than by including a few plumbing checks on your spring cleaning list? Here are a few ways to celebrate fix a leak week and ensure that things are running efficiently at home.
Celebrate Fix a Leak Week:
Check Your Utility Bill – Is your water bill higher than usual? If you haven’t experienced a spike in water use, this is a good indicator that there are undetected leaks around your home.
Check Your Toilet – Many people don’t realize that their toilet has a leak! Take a few drops of food coloring and put it in the tank. If you see that the colored water starts to leak into the bowl (without flushing), you have a leak.
Check For Faucet Drips – Check all of the faucets around your home. Although a faucet leak may seem like a minor plumbing problem, it can lead to significant water waste and wear and tear on your home plumbing over time.
Check Your Outdoor Hose – Prepping for your spring garden? Make sure that your garden hose and hose bib are intact. If water froze and expanded, your hose bib may have cracked. Check for tight connections and make any replacements now, before your plants become thirsty!
