Checklist for Chasing Down Leaks in the Kitchen (Wednesday Fix a Leak Week)

Faucets: Listen for drips and tighten aerators or replace fixtures if necessary.

Sprayer: Check to make sure water is spraying smoothly, if not, clean the head of the spray nozzle.

Under the Sink: Check for pooling water under pipes and rust around joints and edges.

Appliances: Check for pooling water underneath dishwashers and refrigerators with ice makers, which could indicate a supply line leak.

 

Did you know?

A leaky faucet that drips at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year. That’s the amount of water needed to take more than 180 showers!
