HOW TO SPOT A LEAK: FAUCETS

The best way to spot a leak is by visually inspecting your plumbing fixtures. Faucet leaks typically occur from worn out washers and gaskets. A leaky faucet that drips at a rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water a year!

LEAKY TOILET

Old or worn-out flappers can cause leaks in a toilet. Flappers are rubber parts that seal the opening between the tank and the toilet bowl. After time, flappers naturally begin to decay.

While you are inspecting your toilet for leaks, don’t forget about the shut-off valve. This valve is a helpful tool to prevent overflow from a running toilet. It is important this valve is in working condition without corrosion.

TYCO Plumbing’s professional team of plumbers would be happy to evaluate your toilet for leaks, repair and replace your old toilet, and give professional plumbing advice on the most efficient toilet.

DRIPPING SHOWERHEAD

Be sure to check your showerhead for drips frequently. 10 drips per minute is equal to more than 500 gallons per year! The first step is to check the connection between the showerhead pipe. This connection should be tight.
