From the Public Works Department: How to be a “Leak Seeker” Water leaks can drip hundreds and even thousands of gallons of water down the drain. One slow leaky faucet dripping 30 drops per minute wastes 3 gallons of water per day, or the equivalent of 27 baths per year. By using a little detective work you can fi nd and then eliminate these water leaks.


Faucets: Most leaks result from worn out washers in faucets and showerheads. All faucets (including seldom used taps in the basement or storage rooms) should be checked periodically. Faucet leaks are usually caused by worn washers or “O-rings” (for washerless faucets). Repairing them is easy. Just turn off the water supply line to that faucet, replace the washer and then turn the water line back on. Toilets: Toilets are another common water waster. A toilet leak tends to be less noticeable than a faucet leak. To check


10 The Pride


your toilet for leaks, look at the toilet bowl after the tank has stopped fi lling. If the water is still running into the bowl, or if you can hear water running, the toilet is leaking. Although water may not be seen or heard running, your toilet may have what is called a “silent leak.” To test for this type of leak, drop a little food coloring into the tank. Do not fl ush. Wait for about 10 minutes. If the food coloring appears in the toilet bowl, your toilet has a silent leak. It is probably located in or around the plunger ball or fl apper valve at the bottom of the tank. These leaks are easy to fi x with parts from a local hardware store. Outside Taps: Check outside taps for leaking water, especially during the summer sprinkling season. A hose left dribbling away in the grass or garden can waste thousands of gallons of water over the course of a summer. Remember to close outside faucets tightly every time you use the water!
