It is also a good idea to check other places around the house for leaks such as the toilet, faucets, the shower head, pipes under the sink and the pool.
If you and your family decide to go on a vacation this summer there are some useful tips to follow as well! For example turning down your water heater will save energy and turning on your sprinklers once a week to water your plants once deeply instead of everyday will promote deeper root growth and conserve more water. When leaving your home for a number of days it is also beneficial to turn off the water to your toilets. This will minimize potential leaks that could occur when you are gone.
