Celebrate Earth Day; Repair Plumbing & Water Leaks

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Leak Doctor wants everyone to celebrate Earth Day by conserving water and repairing plumbing leaks. It is important for every home and business owner to determine if they are wasting water and identifying the source.

Fixing small household leaks can make a huge difference. Small leaks can add up to gallons of water lost every day. Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons annually nationwide — that’s the equivalent of the annual household water use of more than 11 million homes!

The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.

Wasted water means wasted energy and money. Letting your faucet run for five minutes while washing dishes or brushing your teeth can easily waste 10 gallons of water. The energy it takes to clean and process just 10 gallons of water is enough to power a 60-watt light bulb for 18 hours!

Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. These types of leaks are often easily correctable, in many cases requiring only a few tools and hardware that can pay for themselves in water savings.

If you suspect a water leak on your property but not able to locate the source, it is time to call in a professional. 

As a leader in the industry, the Leak Doctor has cutting edge technology to locate any leak. Even if it is under a concrete slab or the old oak tree in the front yard. Our equipment has made it possible to locate the leak with minimal invasiveness, which means you can save tons of money in repair costs!
