•  Quickly repair leaks and broken sprinkler heads.

These outdoor water wasters often are spotted when you turn the sprinklers on for the first time after several weeks without use. It may seem like a dribble, but a leaky sprinkler head can waste 20 gallons a day. That’s 140 gallons a week. The sooner you fix the leak, the more water you save.
