CONSERVATION TIP #50
Toilet leaks: Toilets are notorious for their silent leaks and can steal thousands of gallons of water. Put a few drops of food coloring to the tank. Do not flush. If the toilet is leaking, color will appear in the bowl within about 10 minutes. Check the toilet for worn out, corroded or bent parts, especially the flapper valve. Most replacement parts are inexpensive, readily available and easily installed.
