It’s Fix a Leak Week

water leakThe EPA’s Fix a Leak Week (March 14-20) highlights the importance of finding and fixing leaks in home plumbing and encourages everyone to be good stewards of water resources.

Louisville Water offers tips on finding leaks, including a video that shows how to do a simple toilet leak test. Toilets are common sources of leaks.

Louisville Water’s Channa Newman, Manager of Education and Outreach, will offer tips on WDRB’s Fox in the Morning on Wed., Mar. 16 (5 to 9 a.m.). She’ll be at Brownsboro Hardware with WDRB’s Keith Kaiser.

Fix a Leak Week is also a good time to remind customers that Louisville Water now offers the WaterPro Water Leak Protection PlanSM. While the average leak costs about $500 in wasted water, WaterPro can protect households with up to $3,000 in coverage.

In an average year, about 45,000 customers call our customer service center with leak concerns.
