Find and fix a leak to get up to $100 back on your next water bill

Leaking faucet and text $100 rebate for leak repair

In an effort to help customers save water and money, Sweetwater Authority (Authority) is offering a rebate of up to $100 for customers who find and fix a leak at their home or business. Though available year round, the Authority is highlighting this special offer 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.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, ten percent of homes across the country have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. The agency created Fix a Leak Week to promote the importance of repairing leaks as a means to conserve and protect everyone’s water supply.

“We encourage all our customers to take a few minutes this week to check for leaks and, if found, repair them,” said Chair Martinez-Perez. “This one small action can result in large water savings, and help prevent wasting our most precious resource.” 

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.
