Tackling Toilet Leaks

The Surprising Impact of Leaky Toilets

While it might sound like a setup for a prank, the reality of water loss due to leaking toilets is no joke. The figures are staggering – a single leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day. Consider this: According to the EPA’s WaterSense page, residential water leaks in the U.S. could amount to over 1 trillion gallons annually. That’s equivalent to the combined annual water usage of major cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami. Just imagine the difference we could make for Central Texas if we addressed these leaks.

Detecting a Leaky Toilet

So, how can you tell if your toilet is part of this problem? There are a few telltale signs:

  1. Sounds from the toilet minutes after flushing indicate a leak.
  2. Jiggling the handle to position the flapper properly is a clear sign of an issue.
  3. Any water movement in the bowl without recent use suggests a leak.
