Fix a Leak Week 2017

Posted

Fix Household Water Leeks


As a manufacturer and supplier of waterproofing products, we can’t help but feel somewhat sensitive when it comes to water leaks. While our premise at Emecole involves preventing the entry of water into basements and crawl spaces, we are also concerned about water leaks of another kind – common household leaks and its impact on our environment.

While a dripping faucet, showerhead or a leaky toilet might not seem like a significant issue, when considering the average amount of wasted water nationwide, the problem is truly significant. According to the EPA, such common household leaks result in the waste of over one trillion gallons of water annually.

Recognizing the significance of this problem, the EPA is sponsoring its ninth annual Fix a Leak Week , March 20-26, 2017. This campaign encourages homeowners to be proactive by checking their household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks. The EPA’s involvement includes the creation of articles that are distributed through various media channels, in addition to the organizing of community events throughout the country. Through this campaign, the primary hope is to minimize the amount of water waste that can easily be avoided for the betterment of our environment.

Please visit the EPA website to learn more on how to check for household leaks or to further participate in any community Fix a Leak Week events.

Do you have any stories to share about leaks in your home and how you fixed them? Tell us via Facebook or LinkedIn.
