Do you have any leaks in your home? You might think that your plumbing system is in good shape, but according to one estimate, you could be losing close to a gallon of water every hour because of leaks. This is concerning, but it’s easy to imagine when you think about how intricate your plumbing system is.
The thing about leaks is that they don’t get better with time. If you have a small leak now it will eventually become more of a problem. Having leaks also increases the chances of mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations, so it is in your best interest to make sure that leaks are kept to a minimum. How do you do that?
Well, there are some areas of your home where you are more likely to find a leak, such as around your faucets and your water heater. Finding these leaks and stopping them can go a long way toward water conservation in your home.
