Every Drop Counts

A leak may seem like a minor issue to the average homeowner. Household leaks waste an astronomical amount of water each year when they are untreated. Some leaks are quite obvious in plain sight, while others are tucked away and go years without being noticed. Below are some places you should check for leaks in your home.
A leaky faucet could waste more than 1,000 gallons of water in a year. If the faucet in your house has a leak, call the professional plumbers at Plumbing Medic to repair it or give you options to replace it with a newer updated faucet if you wish.
A leaky toilet is not as obvious as a leaky faucet. Did you know that food coloring can be used to detect a leak in your toilet? To test out this method, remove the lid and put a few drops of food coloring into the water tank. Let the solution to settle for at least 15 minutes. If you have a leak, there will be colored water in the toilet bowl. When there is no food coloring in the bowl, you’re in the clear!
