Join Moulton Niguel and the EPA to fix leaks!

Did you know? Just one leaky toilet can cause your bill to increase by more than $500!

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!

Moulton Niguel is making it easy for customers to check their toilets for leaks by providing toilet dye tabs! Throughout the month of March, Moulton Niguel will be mailing out a leaky toilet test.

Customers can also request a leaky toilet test any time of the year by calling (949) 831-2500 or emailing customerservice@mnwd.com Need some help on how to perform the dye tab test? Watch the video tutorial below. 

Moulton Niguel will randomly select ten lucky winners to receive a $25 Home Depot gift card! Even if you don’t win a gift card, you’re still a winner because you won’t be paying for water that’s being wasted!
