The average household's leaks can waste more than 10,000 gallons of water every year and 10% of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day! But by quickly finding and fixing leaks you can protect your home and your wallet.
Warm weather usually means increased water use for our customers. When temperatures are higher in the spring and summer, we tend to do more of the activities that use water such as gardening, filling our pools, running sprinklers, and taking extra showers.
This week is the U.S. EPA’s tenth annual Fix a Leak Week. Fix a Leak Week is an opportunity for us at Cleveland Water to empower our customers with information on how to find and fix household leaks. If left unchecked, leaks can run up unnecessary charges on your water bill and cause damage to your property. But you can protect your home and your wallet with a few simple steps.
