Leaks are costing American households millions per year

Palm Springs, Calif. (March 20, 2012)- Since 1993, the United Nations has called the world’s attention to the issue of shrinking water resources. World Water Day, commemorated each March 22, encourages communities to think about their water use and reduce waste. Individual efforts are necessary for the conservation of our most vital resource.

The United States, despite being one of the most technologically advanced nations on the planet, gets a “D-” when it comes to our drinking water infrastructure, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. The low grade is primarily the result of a simple problem easily corrected: leaking pipes, to which we lose about seven billion gallons of drinking water daily.

“Leaks are a major problem, especially with older water systems – but they can often be easily and inexpensively corrected,” said Jimmy Carter of American Leak Detection. “Eliminating household leaks can actually save you 25 percent on water bills, and prevent thousands of gallons of water from being wasted – it is good for you and the planet.”

The average home loses up to 10,000 gallons each year in leaks. By being proactive homeowners can reduce monthly bills, save millions of gallons of water nationwide and protect an indispensible resource for future generations.

The easiest way to check for water leaks in your home is to read your water meter and write down the number on the face of the dial. Make sure that no one in your home uses water for 30 minutes; check the number on your water meter again. If the number has changed, you have a leak.
