That’s enough water for all the people living in the cities Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami combined.

Water-wasting leaks include running toilets, dripping faucets, and other leaking pipes around your home. Most of these leaks can be fixed easily.

Fixing these leaks can save your family more than 10 percent on water bills. That’s like saving $1 for every $10 spent on water.

How Can A Child Find A Water Leak

Ask your parents to help you find the water meter on your house. Usually, it’s on the outside of the house in a box or under a metal cover on the sidewalk that says “Water.” The numbers in the box represent either gallons or cubic feet of water used in your home. Check your meter, then don’t flush the toilet, run the faucet, or use any water for two hours. At the end of the two hours, check the water meter again. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a leak.

• Walk through your house listening for running toilets and looking for drips. Drips usually mean leaks.

• Find out if your toilet is leaking silently by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank (that’s the area behind the toilet seat—ask for mom or dad’s help to remove the lid). If color shows up in the toilet bowl after 10 minutes without flushing, you have a leak. Once you finish the experiment, flush a few times so you don’t stain the toilet.
