This infographic requested by NEEF explains 3 simple steps to prevent water waste.
Did you know that an American home can waste, on average, more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks?
It’s as easy as “check-twist-replace” to find and fix leaks at home:
1. Check toilets for silent leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank. Wait 10 minutes before you flush; if color appears in the bowl, you have a leak.
2. Twist and tighten pipe connections. To save even more water, twist in a WaterSense labeled faucet aerator or showerhead.
3. Replace a fixture if you need to. Look for the WaterSense label when buying household plumbing products. They have been independently certified to save water and perform well.
