American Leak Detection Steps in During Drought for Fix a Leak Week

Franchise Urges Property Owners to Make Simple Repairs to Save Water, Money

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - March 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - The Environmental Protection Agency will help businesses and families across the nation save millions of gallons during its seventh annual Fix a Leak Week, from March 16-22. This awareness week is aimed at eliminating water waste caused by household leaks, many of which go unseen. American Leak Detection is committed to finding and eliminating wasteful leaks, and giving communities important information on saving water.

"It is important to help families and businesses find and stop leaks," said Jimmy Carter, Senior Director of Corporate Field Services. "It not only saves money, but also protects a valuable resource. We hope that people use Fix a Leak Week as an opportunity to cut back on water wasted by leaks."

The average household can lose about 11,000 gallons per month due to running toilets, dripping faucets and other household leaks. American Leak Detection experts point to a number of ways to identify leaks:

  • Check for drips by leaving a glass underneath faucet. Stopping these drips can easily save enough water for over 30 showers, and usually only requires replacement of an inexpensive washer or valve seat.
  • Regularly adding or refilling water is a sign of a pool or spa leak.
  • Leaky toilets can be spotted by adding a teaspoon of food coloring to the tank; if you see the color in the toilet bowl, then the flapper valve needs to be replaced.
  • If your water bill has been creeping up – stop all running water in your home, then check your water meter to see if it is moving.
