Check Your Toilet For Leaks

It's easy to do and it can save water and money

Toilet leaks are the the most common water waster in a home.  Most customers are surprised as to how much water can flow through a toilet without being noticed.  The hard part is that leaks in your toilet are also difficult to detect.


Find a Leak:

To find out if you have a leak add some food colouring or old coffee to your tank. Wait about 30 minutes to an hour and come back and check the bowl. If the colour from the coffee or dye has seeped into the bowl, then you have a leak.


Fix a Leak:

If you have found a leak in your toilet contact a licensed plumber to make the repairs or visit your local hardware store from more information.
