St. Patrick’s Day and Fix a Leak Week – It Starts on March 17th!


happy-st-patricks-dayWe all know when to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. But did you know about Fix a Leak Week?

It’s March 17– 23, 2014. Some cities have festivals and fun planned around this week and Phoenix is one of them. Check it out and join in the fun.

Fix a Leak Week was conceived by WaterSense and the (EPA) and is celebrated in March to remind Americans to check their household fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks. An astonishing amount of water is wasted each year as a result of simple leaks.

  •  1 Trillion Gallons: More than 1 trillion gallons of water is wasted each year nationwide as a result of household leaks.
  • 10,000 Gallons of Water: 10,000 gallons of water is the equivalent of the water used for 270 loads of laundry. It is the average wasted per household because of leaks.
  • 90 Gallons per Day: 10% of households have leaks that waste 90 gallons of water per day.

To give you an idea how much 1 trillion gallons of water is – this equals the water usage of 11 million households!
