Fix a Leak Week 
March 16 - 22, 2020

Utilities would like to help residents learn how to save cash and water by fixing common household leaks. Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. These types of leaks are often easy to fix, requiring only a few tools and hardware that can pay for themselves in water savings. Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills.

Ready to find those leaks? Take the toilet test!

TO TEST YOUR TOILET

  1. Drop a dye tablet or food colouring into your toilet tank.
  2. Wait 5-15 minutes.
  3. If the dye appears in your toilet bowl, the toilet is running, and you have a leak.
  4. Review troubleshooting & repair techniques.

Get the complete checklist for chasing down leaks at www.norfolk.gov/watersense.
