Check your Toilet

Check the cistern in your toilet. A leak in the toilet cistern leads to a lot of water waste. Remove the flap of the cistern and listen carefully, if you hear any hiss sound, that means, there is some leak in the cistern.

If you don’t hear any sound coming from the cistern and want to be double sure, you can ensure that by a simple test. Mix few drops of food colour in the cistern tank. Don’t flush the water for 15 minutes at least, and then watch if there is any colouring in the cistern tank. Colouring signifies leakage.

Check Your Water Meter Box
