Find Out How Much Water Homeowners Waste Every Year on Leaks and Drips

Hidden drips and leaks can be annoying, but that’s not the biggest reason you want to find and repair them. Leaks and drips waste a great deal of resources and money. One slow dripping faucet wastes roughly 35 gallons of water yearly. If you have more than one dripping faucet, you could be wasting more water than you’d use in a week, which is expensive and bad for the environment. A dripping showerhead wastes nearly 500 gallons of water yearly, equivalent to 60 dishwasher cycles. As you can see, hidden leaks and drips are damaging and expensive.

How to Detect Hidden Water Leaks

If you think you may have a hidden leak or dripping faucet, there are many ways to detect any potential water waste.

You can confirm your suspicions of hidden water usage by checking the following places:

  • Your water meter is moving when the water isn’t being used
  • Compare your water habits to your water bill
  • Look for water leakage and pooling water around the exterior of your home
  • Look for leaks behind cabinets or other plumbing joints

Older homes are more vulnerable to plumbing problems due to the age of the pipes. Check your system for signs of wear and tear. If you don’t feel confident searching for signs of leaks, our experienced plumbing team can help. We offer state-of-the-art leak detection tools and techniques.
