How to find a leak:
Contrary to popular belief, you can’t always hear a leak. Toilets are notorious for their hidden leaks and can waste hundreds of gallons a day undetected. Before you call a plumber, there is one simple, inexpensive way to test your toilets. Lift up the lid on the back of your tank and put a few drops of liquid food coloring in. Close the lid and leave the toilet overnight. If colored water shows in the bowl without flushing, there is a leak and repairs are necessary. Also check all your faucets for drips. A dripping faucet or fixture can easily waste 1000 gallons a month.
