Finding and Fixing Hidden Leaks

Learn how to find and fix hidden leaks in
your home.

You know you have a leak when your faucet drips, but do you know how to find a hidden leak? Finding and fixing leaks can save as much as 11,000 gallons of wasted water per year and more than 10 percent on water bills.

If you suspect you have a phantom water waster in your home, follow these tips to find the culprit. But first, make sure no water is being used inside or outside of your home.

If you are not able to find the leak, you may want to consider contacting a professional plumber to locate and fix the leak. If you find a simple leak like your toilet flapper or kitchen faucet, you may want to fix the problem yourself.

For more information, call the Conservation Helpline at (702) 258-SAVE.
