Did you know the average home wastes about 10,000 gallons of water a year due to running toilets and drippy faucets? One way to find out if you're wasting water is to turn off every faucet, shower, washing machine and anything else that uses water in your home. Note your water meter reading and come back a few hours later; if the meter reads the same, you're good to go. If it reads higher, somewhere in your home there's a leak that needs to be fixed.
