Fix a Leak Contest

In honor of Fix a Leak Week, March 16-22, 2020, IRWD is hosting a contest where customers can win a Home Depot gift card—just for checking for water leaks!

Complete our online customer training, take a short quiz and submit your proactive Fix a Leak photo or video for a chance to win a Home Depot gift card. Our training and quiz take about 10–15 minutes, and provide a great video overview of how to identify and fix leaks around your home. After completion, submit one or more photos of yourself checking for leaks around your home. The online customer training and quiz can be found at

Completing these three simple tasks will automatically enter you into the random drawing to be selected for a $100 Home Depot gift card.

Photos or videos can be submitted to the form below. The contest begins March 1 and ends March 31, and winners will be notified the first week of April.

NOTE: All photos become property of IRWD. Open to IRWD customers only. IRWD employees are not eligible to participate. 


Fix a Leak Week is sponsored in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program.
