After all, how much water do they really waste?
According to the EPA, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak every year in homes across the U.S. That’s enough water to sustain the population of Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami combined each year. It’s also estimated that leaks in almost 10 percent of American homes drip away nearly 90 gallons of water a day.
With Fix a Leak Week right around the corner (March 17-23), there’s no better time to check your home for leaks and make every drop count.
To help you save water and money, the Regional Water Providers Consortium—a group of 20+ regional water providers plus the regional government Metro— is offering free indoor water saving kits to customers who reside in the Consortium service area (find out if you qualify at www.conserveh2o.org/consortium-members). Available from March 1 through March 22 (while supplies last) the kits include a bathroom faucet aerator, kitchen faucet aerator, high efficiency showerhead, shower timer, toilet leak-detection dye tablets and a toilet fill-cycle diverter.
To request a free kit, visit the Regional Water Providers Consortium on Facebook, www.facebook.com/RegionalWaterProvidersConsortium, from March 1 through March 22.
