[ARCHIVED] 2016 Fix a Leak Week

blue water drop

The program asks everyone to take time out during the week to check for leaky fixtures around their apartment, home, or business. Household water leaks cost homeowners approximately 10 percent more on their water bill through problems such as worn-out toilet flappers, leaking valves, dripping faucets, and others. That’s enough water wasted to fill an Olympic size swimming pool. So, let’s do our part to reduce the water waste in and around our region. To assist customers in this effort, Saving Water Partnership has made available outdoor hose bib washers and dye strips for testing toilets for leaks. If you’re interested in outdoor hose bib washers or dye strips please contact arece.hampton@seattle.gov.
