Leak Detection

Toilets and faucets are the most common source of water leaks.  Leaky toilets can often be repaired inexpensively by replacing the flapper in the bottom of the tank.  Replacing the rubber O-ring or washer inside the valve of a dripping faucet could save a significant amount of water.  You can use this Drip Calculator to measure and estimate water lost due to leaks.

Here are a few ways to test your home for possible water leaks.
