Celebrate Earth Day by Repairing Water Leaks

Water conservation and repairing water leaks are just a few ways to celebrate Earth Day. From taking a shower to watering the lawn, keeping track of how much water we are using can be difficult.

It may not seem like much, but letting the water run while you brush your teeth, that dripping faucet, and undetected plumbing leaks, are all part of why we are wasting over one trillion gallons of water a year.

Here are a few ways you can not only conserve water, but also save a few bucks.

Home and business owners are responsible for checking their pipes and plumbing for leaks. Over 7 million gallons of clean drinking water is wasted through leaking pipes every day. When water is wasted, so is energy.

Just because you can’t see most of your pipes, doesn’t mean they aren’t leaking.

Get Everyone Involved

Grab a flashlight, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Water Use Checklist and go on a leak detection hunt with the kids. Check under sinks and cabinets for leaks, listen for running wage between walls, feel for warm spots on the floors, smell for any musty odors, and check the outside irrigation for any leaks.

Check your Irrigation System

It's important to check your irrigation system each spring to ensure it wasn't damaged by our cold winter. Just a small hole, 1/32nd if an inch (the thickness of a dime) in the irrigation lines can waste over 6,300 gallons of water in just one month, without anyone even noticing. Also, check your garden hose and the pipes leading up to it.
