Leaky plumbing fixtures are the second largest cause of water waste. Small, slow drips from a leaky toilet, tub faucet, shower head or kitchen sink can waste a tremendous amount of water and money.
SavewaterNY are experts in locating and fixing leaks. We will use perfected methods to test your plumbing fixtures for leaks. A simple method for detecting leaks in toilets is to place 10 drops of food coloring into the toilet’s tank. Wait 15 minutes and then check the bowl. If the colored water shows up, you have a leak. A leaking toilet can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.
When you factor in continuous 24/7 dripping over any length of time, then consider all the faucets dripping throughout your properties...the amount of water and money wasted is enormous. Leaks really add up and must be fixed.
If you use the Drip Accumulator calculator on the United States Geological Survey (USGS) website, you'll see that a single slow leaky faucet dripping 30 drops per minute wastes 3 gallons per day, or the equivalent of 27 baths per year. The USGS also estimates that many of our toilets leak approximately 22 gallons of water per day.
