· Check outdoor hoses for damage from winter frost and tighten connections at the water source.
· Inspect in-ground sprinkler systems, sprinkler heads and pipes, for signs of leakage.
· Check additional plumbing and outdoor fixtures for leaks. They may just need a quick twist or pipe tape.
It is estimated that one in every ten homes has a leak that is wasting ninety gallons or more of water a day. With more than 30,000 homes in Norman connected to the water system, that means over 270,000 of water is being wasted every single day.
