The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created “FIX a LEAK WEEK” as a national campaign to educate consumers about water-saving behaviors using WaterSense labeled products. The WaterSense label makes it easy to identify products that use less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.
Whether by replacing an inefficient fixture with a WaterSense labeled product or adopting water-efficient behaviors, we can all take action to save water for future generations.
Saving is as easy as check, twist, replace.
- Check toilets for silent leaks: put a few drops of food coloring in the tank and wait 10 minutes to flush. If color appears in the bowl, the flapper may need replacing.
- Twist on a WaterSense labeled bathroom faucet aerator, 1.5 gpm or lower to save water and energy at the tap without noticing a difference in flow.
- Replace your showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model that uses less water and energy, but still lets you shower with power.
