Most insurance companies do not cover the damages from a slow water leak that may have been found during routine maintenance.

This is why it is important to stay proactive about water leaks. The EPA says the average family of 4 uses around 12,000 gallons of water a month, or 3,000 gallons per person. Next time you receive your water bill take a look on how many gallons you used, if it exceeds the average, you probably have a water leak.

Spring is also a good time to check your irrigation for any leaks. Even a tiny leak, 1/32nd of an inch, can waste of 6,000 gallons in just a month.
