On Monday, March 13, 2017, the Frisco City Council proclaimed March 20-26, 2017 Fix-a-Leak Week. This proclamation confirms Frisco’s continued partnership with the EPA to raise awareness about water loss in the US due to small household leaks. While small household leaks may seem insignificant, they can really add up; last year alone, those leaks amounted to more than 1 trillion gallons of wasted water!
Please join us in taking 10 minutes to check your home for leaks and help crack down on water waste. Check your toilets for worn flappers, dripping faucets, and leaking shower heads for any noticeable leaks. A leaking faucet can waste about 3,000 gallons of water a year, a leaking shower can waste more than 500 gallons, and a leaking or old-style toilet can waste about 13,000 gallons. So fix those leaks once you find them or replace outdated fixtures with new WaterSense labeled fixtures.
Not sure how to fix a leak once you find it? We can help! Register to attend one of our Fix-A-Leak workshops. Frisco’s own licensed plumbers will teach you how to repair minor leaks with hands-on demonstrations.
Afraid you might have a water leak in your irrigation system? We’ve got you covered there too! The City of Frisco offers FREE sprinkler system check-ups to our residents! Call 972-292-5800 to schedule an appointment or e-mail us to set up an appointment today. Our own licensed irrigators will come out, inspect your system and set up your controller for you.
Thank you, for partnering with the City of Frisco to stay Waterwise!
