"You can put several of them leaks together and fill a swimming pool with the amount of water wasted through the year," Jeff Shreiner, Owner of the 1-800-Plumber said.
That's why the EPA is leading the charge on what organizers call "Fix A Leak Week".
The City of Amarillo is joinging in, encouraging people in the Panhandle to fix leaks and help save water.
According to Shreiner, many people he sees simply let leaks go - things like dripping faucets and running toilets.
"A lot of people work, and then they get home at night and they see it or hear it but then they don't deal with it and so they just leave it alone and what they don't realize is, number one it's costing a lot of money. And number two, it can wear the faucet out to where it's not even fixable," Shreiner said.
According to him, these basic leaks only take about an hour to fix. And according to the EPA, getting rid of these small leaks can save you ten percent on your water bill. So fix a leak, and you can save a little money and a lot of water.
