The City of Calgary's Fix-A-Leak Week kicks off on Monday, to help spread the word to Calgarians about water conservation. According to their website, leaks can account for over 10% of the average water used in a home—that's a lot of wasted money too.
Leaky toilets are among the most common sources of water wastage in homes. You can easily check to see if your toilet leaks with these easy steps:
1. Remove the tank lid of your toilet.
2. Drop several drops of food colouring into the toilet tank, wait 20 minutes.
3. Look into the toilet bowl, if the water changes colour, you have a leak.
4. Get your toilet repaired, and you could save $100 with one fixed toilet!
