Leaky faucets and running toilets can waste up to ten thousand gallons of water a year in your home. That’s enough to nearly fill a backyard swimming pool!
Learn how to fix that leaky faucet, get some exercise and chase a real-life running toilet at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 9, at the third annual One for Water 4-miler race and family fun festival at Rio Vista Community Park in Peoria.
Walking and running participants will help create awareness for fixing leaks and encourage water efficiency in our homes, landscapes and businesses.
Registration is just $25 at fixaleakweekaz.com and includes a reusable water bottle, t-shirt, great food and a free family festival after the run with hands-on leak repair demonstrations.
Fixing water leaks is simple and easy to do and can save you as much as ten percent or more on water bills each month. The most common places to find leaks in the home include toilets, faucets, shower heads, drip irrigation lines and sprinkler systems.
The event is a cooperative effort by the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association and includes the cities of Avondale, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Goodyear, Mesa, Peoria, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe. Working together, we are One for Water™.
You can also watch two public service announcements featuring the Phoenix Suns Gorilla and the race mascot, Leaky Loo McFlapper here and here as they help chase down water leaks.
