Fix a Leak Week is a first-time effort of the EPA’s WaterSense Program that will encourage Americans to improve the water efficiency of their homes by checking for and fixing leaks.

The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association is encouraging members and homeowners to participate in “Fix a Leak Week,” a first-time effort of the EPA’s WaterSense Program that will encourage Americans to improve the water efficiency of their homes by checking for and fixing leaks.  

“We have urged our members across the country to take part in this very worthwhile event,” said PHCC President Joe Schmitt, owner of Joe Schmitt & Sons Plumbing and Heating, Englewood, Ohio. “PHCC members are trained and qualified professionals - the perfect adviser to help homeowners learn how they can implement water- and energy-efficient technologies in their homes. At the same time, their involvement will raise awareness of PHCC and its commitment to protecting public health and safety.” 

Relying on their years of training and experience, PHCC members can provide tips on how to save energy and water and also show customers how to detect leaks in their homes. And when needed, PHCC members can be available to fix common leaky parts (such as shower heads, toilets and faucets). When replacement parts are required, participating PHCC members can steer consumers toward purchasing and using WaterSense products that the EPA has had certified as water efficient by an independent, licensed certifying body.

Some members will offer special incentives during the week, such as complimentary water/energy audits, coupons and rebates. For a list of PHCC members in your area, visit www.phccweb.org and click on “Find a Contractor.”
