April is Water Conservation Month and an ideal time to consider smart water use to protect our water supply and your pocketbook. The FGUA encourages all water users to take simple step to conserve our water supply. Leaks in household water pipes can be costly and wasteful.
Did you know that leaks can be sneaky…they can be hidden and hard to find. Water maybe secretly trickling slowly from a pipe or fixture somewhere in your home. Detective Drippy Holms needs your help and keen eye looking out and finding leaks that maybe lurking around your home.
You can help Detective Holms solve “The Case of the High Water Bill”. Click Here – to help Detective Holms and “look for clues”, then use the clues to find leaks lurking in your home.
