That annoying drip...

We're smack dab in the middle of "National Fix a Leak Week" and already on pace to waste 1 trillion gallons of fresh water by years end.  Have you done anything in your home to check for leaks?

The amount of water leaked from U.S. homes could exceed more than 1 trillion gallons per year. That's equivalent to the annual water use of Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami combined. Wow! Does that mean every home has a leak? Well, if you believe the statistics, the answer is likely yes but we can all do our part in fixing the problem.

Most water leaks in the home go undetected, a leaking toilet flapper or an irrigation line buried out in the yard generally pass under our radar because they usually do not show up as a wet spot on the floor/ceiling.  Click the link above for a whole list of useful tips on where and how to check for leaks in your home and remember I am always eager to help should you need assistance.
