It’s Fix A Leak Week


Posted in: Plumbing by

National Fix A Leak Week

Today is the second day of Fix A Leak Week 2016. It’s celebrated in March of each year as a time to remind Americans to check their household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks. This year, it runs from March 14-20.

The EPA challenges us to find leaks in our home and get them fixed this week. Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide. By finding and fixing leaks, you can save about 10% on your water bills. It will also prolong the life of your plumbing fixtures. Their website has tips on how to find leaks in your:

Toilet

Faucet

Showerhead

Outdoors

Additional resources

If you’re a teacher, daycare provider or simply want to teach your own kids about the importance of water conservation, the Fix a Leak Week website has a TON of great activities. Your family can pledge to ‘filter out bad water habits,’ and there are activity sheets to incorporate a hands-on learning experience. These activities can be found HERE.
