Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year - enough water to fill Lake Winnipesaukee over 13 times. Not only is an incredible amount of water wasted, but so is the energy and money put toward treating, pumping, and heating the water and maintaining the water system that delivers water to your tap. That’s why New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services is asking New Hampshire residents to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems each year during Fix a Leak Week. The amount saved can make a large impact and help to ensure enough clean water for our families and for the future. Learn to look for and easily fix leaks. Just Check, Twist, Replace.
