About Fix A Leak Week

As part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) ongoing We're for Water campaign, this year's Fix a Leak Week encourages Americans to help put a stop to the more than 1 trillion gallons of water wasted from household leaks each year.

"Leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water in an average home every year - enough water to wash nearly 10 months' worth of laundry," said Jody Latimer, Central Arizona Fix A Leak Week Spokesperson. "As a WaterSense partner, we are encouraging consumers to find and fix leaks to save water in our community."

Check for Leaks
Look for dripping faucets, shower heads, and fixture connections. Also check for toilets with silent leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring into the tank, wait at least fifteen minutes and see if the food coloring appears in the bowl before you flush. Don't forget to check irrigation systems and spigots too.

AMWUA's Smart Home Water Guide provides simple steps to find the leaks that may be draining your budget. Often, these leaks are easy to fix, and we have resources to help.

Replace the Fixture If Necessary.
Look for WaterSense labeled models, which are independently tested and certified to use 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.
