How likely am I to have a leak?
1 out of 10 homeowners has water leaks. Leaks can waste water — up to 90 gallons or more per day. This increases water bills by 10-15%. Some water providers offer water audits to show you where and how you can save. These audits are particularly valuable regarding outdoor water usage. Since 50-80% of all residential water is used outdoors for irrigation purposes, making fixes outdoors can have the greatest impact on the drought — and your bill!
