East Bay Municipal Water District (EBMUD) technicians are making the rounds to over 40 area hardware stores, including Pagano’s on Lincoln Avenue, in Alameda, as part of a program to conserve water by fixing leaky toilets.

Water Conservation Technician Andre Easley was at Pagano’s today to drop off a promotional display, and tank leak detection tablets.

The water district is hoping its customers will invest some time in the second half of this month finding an fixing the most common source of indoor water waste – leaky toilets.

The leak detection tablets are free to hardware store customers as part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s annual national Fix a Leak Week campaign.

EBMUD says that nearly one in four toilet tanks has a leak.

“Even our most conscientious customers who conserve water daily may have leaky toilets. It’s normal for plumbing parts to wear out,” said Manager of Water Conservation Richard Harris.

The non-toxic tabs are meant to be placed in the toilet reservoir tank; if the flapper is leaking, the tablets will turn the water in the toilet bowl blue within about 15 minutes.

The district continues to encourage consumers to conserve water wherever possible, in response to the ongoing drought.
