Join Moulton Niguel for a Hands-On Fix-A-Leak Workshop

Did you know that repairing a leaky toilet can save up to 500 gallons of water a day? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide. Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking pipes. These types of leaks are often easy to fix and we want to help you understand where these leaks may be coming from.

Need help getting started? We are hosting a free, hands-on workshop to help you find and fix leaks around your home!

Date: Thursday, March 22, 2018

Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Location: Moulton Niguel Water District Board Room
Address: 27500 La Paz Road, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
RSVP: outreach@mnwd.com or (949) 831-2500
Event Information: www.mnwd.com/events

How Else Can Moulton Niguel Help?

To check for leaks in your home, you first need to determine whether you’re wasting water and then identify the source of the leak. Here are some tips for finding leaks:

  Take a look at your water usage during a colder month.  If a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons per month, you may have a leak.

  Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

  Identify toilet leaks by placing a toilet dye strip in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak. We                             offer FREE dye strips for you to take home and test!

  Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks.

Can’t make our March 22nd workshop? We offer a free home savings survey where our Water Efficiency team can visit your home, review your indoor and outdoor water use, and recommend easy ways to save water and money by becoming more efficient.
