A man sits backwards on a toilet, his chest facing the tank.
[Narrator] I know, I know. Not the way you usually sit here, unless you're checking for a leak. See, even a toilet leak the size of a pinprick can add up. And the average leaky toilet? Well, that means you could be putting over $100 dollars a month right down the drain. So, how do you know if your toilet is costing you money? Easy. All it takes is a few drops of food coloring, and about a half an hour of your time. Just take the lid off the back of your toilet, and add a few drops of food coloring to color the water,
He takes the lid off the tank and squirts in some blue food dye.
[Narrator] and then go do something else for about 30 minutes.
He replaces the toilet tank lid and walks out.
[Narrator] I recommend an old episode of I Love Lucy.
The man stands up and exits the bathroom. Cuts to a door opening and the man re-entering the room.
[Narrator] When time's up, just look in the bowl.
The man lifts the toilet seat.
[Narrator] If you see any color in the water, like this, well, you've got yourself a leak.
He looks in the toilet to see blue tinged water.
[Narrator] Fix it yourself or call a plumber. Either way, you'll lose the leak and save cash. To learn how to replace the flapper in your toilet, and fix the leak, look for that video and plenty of others at bpu.com.
