The average American family wastes 10,000 gallons of water annually due to leaks and drips that could be easily repaired.

To bring attention to the issue, which wastes resources as well as your money, the Environmental Protection Agency is currently hosting Fix a Leak Week, with free clinics around the country that’ll help you plug up leaks and save more than a few bucks in the process.

The EPA has also posted a how-to for checking for leaks and fixing leaky toilets, faucets, showerheads, and hoses.
