Resident water leaks impact your bottom line!

How many of your dollars have your residents watched go down
their drains and toilets?

1 Home 1 leak dripping 20 per minute = 694 gallons per year

1 Home 1 leak dripping 30 per minute = 1041 gallons per year

1 Home 1 leak dripping 60 per minute = 2082 gallons per year

1 Home leaking toilet can leak 25,000 gallons per month or more

 

50 homes dripping 60 drips per minute would use 285 gallons per day, 8,550 gallons per month 104,100 gallons per year.

100 homes dripping 60 drips per minute would use 570 gallons per day, 17,100 gallons per month 208,200 gallons per year.

500 homes dripping 60 drips per minute would use 2,852 gallons per day, 85,560 gallons per month 1,041,000 gallons per year.

Drip Accumulator: How much water does a leaking faucet waste?"

Check your faucets at home -- do any of them drip? Well, maybe it's just a small drip -- how much water can a little drip waste? True, a single drip won't waste much water. But think about each faucet in your home dripping a little bit all day long. What if every faucet in every home on your block ... in your town ... in your state also dripped? The drips would add up to a flood of water wasted down the drain. Worse yet is a running toilet which may burn through 25,000 gallons a month or more!

A small drip has a volume of about 1/4 of a milliliter (0.25 ml). So, by my estimates, there are about 4,000 drips in a liter of water. A gallon is equal to 3.7854 liters, so, by the math (4,000 times 3.7854), we have about 15,100 drips per gallon.

Enter your responses in the three entry fields in the form below. you can calculate just how much water would be wasted according to these items that you specify:

Homes: Number of homes with leaking faucets (from 1 to 1 million)
Faucets: Number of leaking faucets/toilet in each home
Drips: Number of drips per minute per faucet (from 1 to 120)
