Wanted: Photos of You Fixing a Leak

Fix a Leak Week is March 16-22, so Irvine Ranch Water District will observe it by hosting a contest for leak detectives. IRWD customers can win up to a $500 Home Depot gift card for their efforts.

To enter, use this checklist and be a leak detective:

  1. Check for broken sprinklers or overspray. Fix and adjust your sprinklers if you find these problems.

  2. Adjust your sprinkler controller for proper watering times using the IRWD watering schedule.

  3. Check your garden hose bib to make sure it’s not leaking.

Have a photo taken of you doing any of these leak detecting activities and submit the photos online through March 31, at irwd.com/fixaleak. For each photo submitted, participants will receive an entry to win a $500, $300, or $100 gift card to Home Depot. All participants will receive a coupon in the mail good for $5 at Home Depot (one per household, while supplies last. Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery).

Fix a Leak Week is sponsored in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program. Full contest details are available at irwd.com/fixaleak.
