* Learn to listen for dripping sounds in your home. Try to choose a time when it is the quietest in the house, perhaps very early in the morning and late at night. Thousands of those little, insignificant drips turn into gallons and gallons of wasted water, which drives up your water bill.
* Look for signs of leaks around the baseboards of your walls near all of your plumbing and plumbing fixtures. Pipes may become corroded, have loose fittings or crack as a result of freezing, allowing leaks and puddles. Mildew or mold can occur around these places.
* Look underneath your vanities and sinks for droplets of water that might be accumulating and leaking. Pipes sometimes sweat when cold water flows through them in warmer interior airspaces in the home.
* Listen to your commodes and bathrooms for unusual noises, most especially if they haven’t been flushed in a while. Sticking flush valves, as well as leaking seals can cause the loss of excess water.
* Check to see if you are having drain/waste problems, such as slow tub or sink drains, the water backing up in the tub or sink, wet areas on the lawn near the drain pipes or unusual gurgling sounds, bubbling up when draining.
