December Tip of the Month
It’s important to know that a leaky toilet can flush 100-250 gallons worth of water, per day, down the drain. It’s very easy and inexpensive to test and fix most common toilet leaks. Even if you don’t hear a leak, a toilet can still have silent leaks so check all toilets (even those unused) in spring and fall. When testing for leaks, simply place a little food dye in the reservoir (tank) of your toilet. Don’t flush the toilet for 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes the food color shows up in the toilet basin – you have a leak. Fixing leaks will save water, which will also save on your water bill!
