Common Water Leakage Problems and Solutions from caitlynwilliams's blog

Water leaks in Miami are common, whether you are in bungalow or an apartment. While most of us think of leaks as merely annoying, these can also be extremely wasteful. Each drip amounts to a gallons of water when it is wasted like this. Consider these numbers:

-    One toilet leak is close to 1.5 gallons per minute, which amounts to 21,600 gallons per month
-    A leasing faucets can waste as much as 10,000 gallons in a day.
-    Even a drip per second from a single faucet adds up to more than 3,000 gallons of water per year.
-    Let’s add up all these little leaks in one single neighbourhood and the figures get even more alarming.
-    10 percent of the homes leak so much that they waste around 90 gallons in a day.

So, the next time a leak happens in your home, try to fix it as soon as possible. By the time your plumber comes, you will end up wasting gallons of water. This is water that you can use for cooking, drinking, flushing or bathing.

DIY Tricks for water leaks

Most leaks occur due to clogging. As a one and its pipes get older, sediments built up and the water start to overflow. This is usually one of the major reasons for water leaks in Miami. Sometimes fittings and connections can get loose. Fortunately, most leaks can be fixed quite easily. All you need is a plunger.

Kitchen sink clog: Use a plunger to cover the drain. Now use force to pull out. The water will drain and remove the clog.
Toilet clog: We use the same technique with a cup plunger.
Bathtub clog: You will need two plungers. Put one on the drain and use the second plunger to plug the tub’s overflow.

Shower heads/Leaky faucets: Use a wrench and pipe tape to tighten the connections.
