According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
- The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
- Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day!
- Common types of leaks found in the home include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. All are easily correctable.
In many cases, household leaks are easily fixed in about 10 minutes. This can mean BIG savings for your wallet as well as the environment.
