EPA Encourages Americans to Save Water During Fix a Leak Week/ WaterSense Partner of the Year Delta Faucet Company to fix leaks at homes and community facilities across the country

WASHINGTON – American households waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water each year due to leaky pipes, toilets, showerheads and other fixtures, but fixing leaks can be easy and inexpensive. During the 4th annual Fix a Leak Week, March 12-18, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program is educating Americans about the importance of fixing leaks around the home, which will save water and nearly 10 percent on utility bills.
WaterSense’s 2011 Manufacturer Partner of the Year Delta Faucet Company, in partnership with EPA, GreenPlumbers USA, United Way, Ronald McDonald House, and various local water utilities and governments, will fix leaks in more than 1,000 low-income households and community facilities in Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, San Francisco and Seattle. Delta will fix leaky toilets and faucets, and install WaterSense-labeled showerheads in each location, and estimates that these actions will save millions of gallons of water this year alone.
“Across the country, household leaks add up to more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually. The amount we’re losing could supply Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami for a full year,” said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. “We’re not just losing water, we’re also losing the money our communities put into keeping our water clean and healthy. That’s why Fix a Leak Week is so important, and why we encourage everyone to take a few simple steps that can add up to have a significant positive impact.”
The average American home leaks more than 10,000 gallons of water per year, which is equivalent to the water needed to wash 280 loads of laundry, take more than 600 showers or meet the average family’s water needs for a month.
Finding and fixing leaks around the home is as easy as check, twist and replace:
Check for leaks. Toilet leaks can be found by putting a few drops of food coloring into the tank and seeing if color appears in the bowl before you flush. Don’t forget to also check irrigation systems and spigots.
Twist and tighten pipe connections. To save even more water without a noticeable difference in flow, twist on a WaterSense labeled faucet aerator or showerhead.
Replace the fixture if necessary. Look for the WaterSense label when replacing plumbing fixtures, which are independently certified to use 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.
WaterSense, a partnership program sponsored by EPA, seeks to protect the future of our nation's water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services. Since the program's inception in 2006, WaterSense has helped consumers save 125 billion gallons of water and more than $2 billion in water and energy bills. Consumers can find WaterSense-labeled products at thousands of retail locations across the country.

Fix A Leak Week March 12-18

We're in this together
CELEBRATE WORLD PLUMBING DAY - MARCH 11
World Plumbing Day is an international event on March 11 initiated by the World Plumbing Council celebrating the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.
The aftermath of 2010’s devastating earthquake in Haiti and last year’s tsunami in Japan
reveals how easy it is to take for granted the availability of safe drinking water and sufficient sanitation systems — until those systems cease to function properly. History shows that great leaps in humankind’s advancement — both physically and socially — have been tied to advances in plumbing technology.
The safety and abundance of drinking water is, of course, a concern for most people all over the world, but what is not often emphasized is the work the plumbing industry contributes every day to alleviate these concerns. We would like you help in bringing a better understanding of the largely misunderstood role plumbers play in keeping folks safe and healthy each and every day.
We look forward to seeing your participation in this worthwhile event. Check back later for information on events and activities for World Plumbing Day 2012.

Every Drop Counts
Did you know that an American home can waste, on average, more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks?
Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. That's why WaterSense reminds Americans to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems each year during Fix a Leak Week.
WaterSense is teaming up with their partners to promote the fourth annual Fix a Leak Week, March 12-18, 2012.
From New Mexico’s search for bad flappers to leak detection efforts in Texas, Colorado and across the nation, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in this year’s Fix A Leak Week. Explore some of this year’s many events to find out more.
Colorado Springs Utilities, Colorado
Colorado Springs Utilities will celebrate Fix a Leak Week with programs and information throughout the month of March, including a WaterSense labeled showerhead exchange event March 17, 2012, and free WaterSense labeled faucet aerators for the first 200 participants who exchange an old showerhead for a WaterSense labeled model. The event will feature plumbing experts, free dye tabs, and a visit from Ollie the Otter, the Colorado Springs Utilities’ water mascot. There’s even a recycled toilet art exhibit in partnership with a local community college to highlight a new toilet recycling program in the area.

Dreaming of a Better Bathroom?
Bathrooms are by far the largest water users in the home, accounting for more than half of all the water that families use indoors. If you are planning to remodel your bathroom, did you know plumbing fixtures are available in a wide variety of colors, models, and prices to help you save water and money?
Advances in plumbing technology and design mean that faucets, showers, and toilets can use significantly less water than standard models while still delivering the rinse, spray, and flush you expect.
The Big Picture
Why save water? Because it's our most precious natural resource, and because at least two-thirds of the United States have experienced or are bracing for local, regional, or statewide water shortages. With populations continuing to rise, using water wisely helps save this vital resource for future generations.
Changes we make at home will add up quickly in neighborhoods across the country. If one in every 10 American homes upgrades a full bathroom with WaterSense labeled fixtures, we could save about 74 billion gallons of water and about $1.6 billion on our utility bills nationwide per year.
How Much Can You $ave?
Giving your bathroom a high-efficiency makeover by replacing older, inefficient bathroom fixtures with new toilets, faucet hardware and shower heads can help your household
save in more ways than one.
How Much Will a Bathroom
Makeover With PLUMBCO LLC Save?
Cool-n-Save® is an AWARD WINNING patented product that is simple to use and install.
Anyone can Install a Cool-n-Save® residential DIY kit in less than five minutes with no tools required. The valve housing affixes to the top of most home air conditioning units. It activates only when the AC unit turns on; hot air from the condenser unit’s fan raises the flap on the patented Cool-n-Save® control valve allowing water to flow to the misters that surround the AC unit. When the ultra-fine mist is released into the air, it evaporates almost instantly creating what is known as a “Flash Evaporation,” which literally sucks heat out of the air as water absorbs the energy it needs to evaporate. The result of the immediate evaporation constitutes a substantial drop in ambient temperature without wetness—up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
