2018 Fix A Leak Contest

2018 Fix A Leak Contest

In honor of Fix a Leak Week, March 19–25, IRWD is hosting a contest where customers can win a $500 Home Depot gift card—just for checking for water leaks!

Complete our online customer training, take a short quiz and submit your proactive Fix a Leak photo for a chance to win a $500 Home Depot gift card. Our training and quiz take about 10–15 minutes, and provide a great video overview of how to identify and fix leaks around your home. After completion, submit one or more photos of yourself checking for leaks around your home. The online customer training and quiz can be found at rightscapenow.com/training-center.

Completing these three simple tasks will automatically enter you into the random drawing where one winner will be selected for a $500 Home Depot gift card. If you choose to only complete the training, you will be entered into a separate drawing for a chance to win a $200 Home Depot gift card; submit only a photo and be entered for a chance to win a $100 Home Depot gift card.

Photos can be submitted to the Irvine Ranch Water District Facebook, Instagram, Twitter page or at the form below. For social media, follow us and comment on our Fix a Leak graphic with your photo or use #irwdfixaleak when you post your photo. The contest begins Feb. 1 and ends March 25, and winners will be notified by March 31.

NOTE: All photos become property of IRWD. Open to IRWD customers only. IRWD employees are not eligible to participate. 


Fix a Leak Week is sponsored in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program.
