Don't-Ignore-That-Drip

Home maintenance involves more than fixing problems that are visible to the eye. It also includes checking around your home for small issues you might not ordinarily notice. This includes minor plumbing issues.

Homeowners should always be on the lookout for leaky faucets and showers, as well as toilets that won’t stop running. These might seem like minor inconveniences, but the amount of wasted water can be substantial. A slow dripping faucet can add up to as much as 10,000 gallons of water annually, and a running toilet is even worse! A toilet that continually runs can waste about 6000 gallons of water every month, costing consumers nearly $1000 every year.

Clearly, it pays to listen for drips and running toilets, as well as look for unexpected moisture under your sinks and around your toilets. Addressing these issues quickly will save you both time and money.
