To assist customers with costs associated with leak repairs and to help conserve our most precious resource - water, Sweetwater Authority (Authority) is offering rebates of up to $75 for repairs from March 1, 2022 through June 30, 2022. The special rebate is in celebration of the national Fix a Leak Week, which serves as an annual reminder to check household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks.
In addition to this special rebate on leak repairs, the Authority offers customers a $75 rebate to replace or install a new pressure reducing valve at their home. These valves help to 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.
Information on all the Authority’s water efficiency rebates is available at www.sweetwater.org/rebates.
Minor water leaks account for more than a trillion gallons of water wasted each year in homes across the country. 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 Authority goes beyond the EPA’s week to offer this promotion from March through the end of June.
