Find and Fix Leaks around the Home

Leaky toilets, indoor faucets, and outdoor faucets around your home could cost you up to $200 a year on your utility bill, and waste 10,000 gallons of water. Finding and fixing leaks is an easy way to save money and save water.

Use these step-by-step videos to find and fix the most common household leaks:

Toilet leaks 
Toilet leaks are sneaky. Many toilet leaks are silent and can occur without you knowing, but fixing them is pretty simple.

Indoor faucets
Indoor faucet leaks are one of the most common household leaks and one of the easiest to fix.

Outdoor faucets 
A leaky outdoor faucet can be easy to miss – out of sight, out of mind. But even a small leak can quickly turn into a big bill, so make sure you fix it immediately!
