Don’t be a drip: Fix leaks
If you have a dripping faucet, fix it — today. Otherwise, you're letting your money go down the drain — literally.
Leaks can occur anywhere along the water distribution system. Faucets, toilets and pipe fittings are some common culprits.
The amount of water may seem insignificant, but it can add up to thousands of gallons of water over a very short period. Water leaks are a drain on profits and should be a priority maintenance item for every restaurant.
