Leaks in the house can cause extensive damage not only to the structure but to your wallet as well. In fact, the EPA estimates the average household leak can account for nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year and ten percent of homes have leaks that are 90 gallons or more per day. If you think you have a water leak make sure to turn off the water supper valve to put a temporary stop water leak. You can also perform a water meter check and record the results. If there is a leak make sure to consult a plumber to identify the source as well as what action is needed to be taken.
