Leaking Showerhead in Deer River?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

A shower is running in a bathroom. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Itasca County.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that homes in the United States waste more than one trillion gallons of water each year. SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing offers these tips from the EPA for detecting leaks in your Deer River home:

Shower Leaks

  • Most leaky showerheads can be fixed by ensuring a tight connection using pipe tape and a wrench. If you are replacing a showerhead, look for one that has earned the WaterSense label.

Other Leaks

  • A good method to check for leaks is to examine your water use. It is likely that a family of four has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a leak.
  • To check for a toilet bowl leak, place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color shows up in the bowl within ten minutes without flushing, you have a leak.
