Are you into DIY? Here are some easy things you can DIY around your home during Fix a Leak Week and throughout the year:
The Water Drop Dash 5K celebrate US EPA’s Fix a Leak Week, a special occasion for us to acknowledge the fact that 1 TRILLION gallons of water are wasted annually nationwide because of household leaks. We celebrate this week by tightening loose faucets and pipes, checking the toilet for leaks, checking your outdoor spigot for leaks, and inspecting your irrigation system for broken lines and sprinkler heads. But really, it’s best to keep water conservation top-of-mind throughout the year.
Fix a Leak Week is March 18-24, 2024. Find out more about fixing leaks around your house at EPA WaterSense.
