Join Concord General Services in celebrating EPA WaterSense's Fix A Leak Week, March 15-21, 2021!
A leaky toilet, faucet, showerhead, or irrigation system may seem harmless, but more than 10,000 gallons of water are wasted each year from leaks in the average household. Leaks can waste a lot of water and can lead to outrageous utility bills. Find and fix household water leaks to save water and possibly even money on your water bill.
Join General Services on Twitter @ConcordNHGS to kick-off Fix A Leak Week! Join the Twitter Party on Monday, March 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST to take part in a national conversation about how to find and fix water leaks. Tweet and follow along using the hashtag #FixaLeak.
Toilets can be a sneaky culprit for water leaks and high water bills. Often times they can be silent and go undetected until you notice a spike in your water bill. Grab a free Toilet Leak Dye Test Kit at General Services' Utility Billing Office at 311 North State Street to perform a quick and easy leak test on your toilet. Kits will be available as supplies last through March 21, so grab them before they are gone! Or, use your own dye or food coloring at home and follow along to the instructions of this video: How To Detect A Toilet Leak.
Leaks can be a royal pain! Find and fix water leaks by performing a royal leak detection. Enter General Services' Royal Leak Detection contest for a chance to win a new royal "throne" (WaterSense labeled toilet)! The American Standard Edgemere white elongated toilet uses only 1.28 GPF (gallons per flush) and is certified by EPA WaterSense to use at least 20% less water without sacrificing performance. Enter the contest for a chance to win by sharing how you have found and fixed water leaks. To enter, submit a contest entry form online, by mail, or at 311 North State Street. Another entry option is to share in a social media post how you have found and fixed water leaks. Tag Concord General Services @ConcordNHGS on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using the hashtags #IFixLeaks and #ConcordNH. Double your chance to win by entering the contest both ways (social media and contest entry form)! All entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. on March 21, 2021. By entering the contest, you agree to the terms and conditions of our official contest rules.
Be a leak detective for Fix A Leak Week! Common leaks around the home include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. Most leaks are easy to fix. Sometimes a valve or fixture tightening is all that is needed. Consider upgrading outdated fixtures to a WaterSense labeled product for improved water efficiency without sacrificing performance.
