You may need a water leak detective. The big problem with water leaks is that you don’t see them until they’ve caused damage. For the vast majority of us, a water leak is the last thing on our minds. Unless it’s showing itself on our walls or slab, chances are it’s not going to get fixed real soon. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that an average household water leak will waste 10,000 gallons of water a year. Additionally, the EPA reports that 10% of the homes in the USA have a water leak that wastes 90 gallons of water per day. Be a leak detective in your home.

Become A Water Leak Detective
According to the EPA, the most common types of household leaks in our home are leaking valves, dripping faucets, and worn out toilet flappers. A worn out toilet flapper can cause 200 gallons of water waste per day. While these small leaks may seem minor, the average slow dripping faucet leak cost a homeowner $20 annually. And a fast dripping faucet $60 to $200 annually. In most cases, you can quickly fix these type of leaks yourself, and you can purchase parts such as valves, faucets and toilet flappers at your local hardware store.
