As California’s drought continues, now is a great time to find and repair water leaks. Simple, do-it-yourself repairs can quickly pay for themselves in water savings.
Here in San Francisco, it’s estimated that one in five homes has an ongoing plumbing leak. There is something we can all do to prevent this water waste. Routine water-fixture maintenance and repairs can add up to big savings on water bills and help us protect our precious water supplies. Grab a wrench or contact your favorite handy person, plumber, to address leaking toilets, faucets, showerheads, and irrigation systems around your home.
Leak Detection Program
