Saving water by detecting and fixing leaks
Fixing water leaks can save homeowners more than 10% on their water bills.
Today’s helpful suggestion is how to test your toilet tank for leaks.
Simply remove the lid from the tank and place carefully to the side. Next,
drop 2 drops of food coloring into the tank water. You need to let that
stand for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, look at the water in the
bowl. You should not see any color, but if you do, you now know that you
have a leak and will likely need to change the tank seal. Tank seals can
be purchased at any home store and changed out relatively easily. For
