To conserve water and save money on monthly bills, San Gabriel County Water District encourages customers to promptly repair leaks, drips and other plumbing issues.

Planned fixes are less expensive than emergency repairs, and can help you avoid flood damage that creates a mess and could require the replacement of floors, walls, and personal property.

The most common locations of water leaks are toilets, faucets, showerheads, and irrigation systems. If you hear the toilet running even when it hasn’t been flushed recently, it is a sign of a slow leak. In many cases, replacing the flapper inside the toilet tank is a quick and straightforward repair that can save about 200 gallons of water each day.

By quickly repairing leaks, you can avoid water waste, higher bills, and more costly repairs if those leaks become worse.
