Do You Have A Water Leak?
Test Your Toilets! Did you know that a silent leak in a toilet can waste more than 40 gallons of water per day? To test your toilets for silent leaks put a few drops of food coloring into the tank of the toilet. Do not flush the toilet for 15 minutes. Check the bowl for colored water. Colored water appearing in the bowl indicates a toilet leak. You can also detect a toilet leak by listening carefully to see if any of your toilets "run". A running toilet can waste up to five gallons per minute! Repairing a toilet leak is usually simple and can often be done by replacing the flapper or fill valve, or adjusting the float.
