We want to help homeowners to make environmentally-responsible choices and save money by reducing water waste around the home. Plumbing leaks waste a whole lot of water each year. In fact, the average household may contribute to about 10,000 gallons of water wasted each year!
Some of these household leaks, like a leak in the pipe behind the shower wall, are urgent. Getting repairs as soon as possible is necessary or you may end up losing quite a bit of money on repair costs, since the resulting water damage could be extensive.
Other issues, however, may not seem as though they need repair so urgently. Toilet leaks, for example, that take place between the bowl and the tank don’t really seem like something calling for immediate repair. However, they can cost you quite a bit!
Test Your Toilet for Leaks
Is your toilet running nearly all the time? Does a rushing water sound come up only from time to time? There may be a leak between the tank and the bowl.
There’s an easy way to test this out. You can get dye tabs from the hardware store or your local plumber. These tabs will deposit dye into your toilet tank. And if the toilet is leaking, then after about 20 minutes of leaving the toilet alone, you will see color in the bowl as well.
A leaky toilet bowl should be repaired as soon as possible. You might throw away hundreds of dollars a year on a leaking toilet tank! You might just need to replace the flapper, but call a professional plumber to be sure. They can make the job a lot easier and see that your toilet is as efficient as possible.
