SMART Home Water Conservation Kit
people look at a leaky faucet in their home and don’t really think
about how much water might be wasted. They’re often surprised to learn
that a leak of just 60 drops per minute can waste approximately 192
gallons a month, or nearly 2,500 gallons per year! A toilet
leak can be even more wasteful, potentially losing up to hundreds of gallons
To help reduce these and other household wastes of our valuable water supply,
Redwood City is offering FREE home water conservation
kits to residents. These kits will help you detect leaks in faucets
and toilets, determine if your fixtures are water efficient, and offer tips
on how to make your home "water tight and waste free."

with swivel to maximize water efficiency in a household’s sinks;

- A drip gauge for detecting faucet leaks;
- Two packs of leak detector dye tablets to check for toilet
- A "Practical Plumbing Handbook" providing a comprehensive
overview of plumbing components and repairs (disponible en Español).
