“why do we need to be constantly filled with the holy spirit – because we leak?”

Today our challenge is to fix leaks. A leaking pipe can waste thousands of liters of water and land you with a huge water bill

Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak. (Be sure to flush immediately after the experiment to avoid staining the tank.)

Check to see if your toilet is leaking from the valve seal. http://www.conserveh2o.org/how-to-videos-water-conservation/how-find-toilet-leak

Examine tap  gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks. Old and worn tap washers and gaskets frequently cause leaks in faucets. Many tutorials are available online for how to fix a wide variety of faucets. Here are a couple of examples:

Receptive, flowing people are the ones who change the world and transform history. Their possibilities are limitless, because they do not let any seeming barriers stop their path; in fact they well up from within until they can surmount any obstacle. “Be like water” is a good piece of advice.
