Dripping faucets and leaky toilets account for a large portion of home water waste. Every year, more than 10,000 gallons of water is wasted in homes due to easy-to-fix leaks. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is encouraging consumers to "fix a leak" during the WaterSense program's seventh annual celebration from March 16 - 22, 2015.
