March 20-26 is Fix a Leak Week, a great time to find and fix household leaks which waste more than one trillion gallons of water nationwide each year. Get started by learning where to find leaks at home and then head to the bathroom! Toilet leaks are common, but may be silent and easy to miss.
Take 20 minutes to celebrate Fix a Leak Week by checking your toilet for leaks with these 5 easy steps:
- Remove the toilet tank lid.
- Drop one dye tablet, strip, or 10 drops of food coloring into the tank.
- Put the lid back on. Do not flush.
- Wait 20 minutes.
- Check your toilet bowl. If you see colored water, you have a leak. If not, you don't.
