In your home you have a water system. All the pipes and fixtures after the water meter comprise your water system. Maintenance of that system is essential in order to prevent water loss and excessive water bills. It is important to understand your plumbing system and be able to detect and recognize potential plumbing problems and leaks.

The most common leak inside the home is a toilet leak. It can use hundreds of gallons of water a day. Many people believe they can hear a toilet leak but some are silent. The primary cause of toilet leaks is a malfunctioning or damaged flapper. Replacing a flapper is an easy affordable way to save money and water. There is no such thing as a universal flapper. Click http://www.toiletflapper.org to find your flapper and information on replacing flappers.
