There are various ways of how our most precious resource is wasted such as leaking pipes, water flowing in toilets and leaky faucets. One of the biggest culprits for wasted water is due to old pipes that burst from rust, poor quality and insufficient corrosion protection. If you have experienced an increasing water bill that is always a sure sign that you have a leak. It is important to act immediately once you realize your water bill has increased.
