Welcome to our Leak Busters website. Here you will find valuable information about water conservation and water efficiency. We at Leak Busters will try to help you become more efficient. Not only will this save you water, but MONEY as well.
Every week there are 200 gallons of water that can be saved by making sure your toilets are well maintained and regulated. Research shows that about 20% of all toilets have leaks. You can save your household money by looking for drips in faucets, fixtures, hoses and plumbing in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, appliances, outdoor plumbing, and irrigation systems. By following some of these simple tips you can become more efficient.
You can get a free rain sensor for existing irrigation controllers.
Install water-saving showerheads and low-flow faucet aerators.
You can easily install a Shower Start showerhead, or add a Shower Start converter to existing showerheads, which automatically pauses a running shower once it gets warm.
Put plastic bottles or float booster in your toilet tank
Also to cut down on water waste, put an inch or two of sand or pebbles inside each of two plastic bottles to weigh them down. Fill the bottles with water, screw the lids on, and put them in your toilet tank, safely away from the operating mechanisms. Or, buy an inexpensive tank bank or float booster. This may save ten or more gallons of water per day
Even the smallest things like:
Taking shorter showers. You can also turn off the shower after soaping up, and then turn it back on to rinse. A four-minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water.
Turning off the water after you wet your toothbrush. There is no need to keep the water running while brushing your teeth. Just wet your brush and fill a glass for mouth rinsing.
Rinse your razor in the sink. Fill the sink with a few inches of warm water. This will rinse your razor just as well as running water, with far less waste of water.
