The Sweetwater Authority is offering a rebate of up to $75 for repairs associated with leak repairs through the end of June.
Customers who request repairs associated with leaks from March 1 through June 30 will be eligible to receive a rebate of up to $75. The rebate comes in celebration of the national Fix a Leak Week, serving as an annual reminder to check household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks.
“Minor water leaks account for more than a trillion gallons of water wasted each year in homes across the country.,” the SWA wrote in a statement. ”To promote the importance of repairing leaks as a means to conserve and protect everyone’s water supply, Fix a Leak Week was created by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program.”
The SWA is offering customers a $75 rebate to replace or install a new pressure-reducing valve in their homes. According to officials, these valves will help address high pressure that can cause increased wear on fittings, making them more prone to leaks.
A rebate of up to $100 is also available for qualifying leak detectors and flow monitors, which can alert customers to potential leaks through an app on their smartphone.
