Water Use Catastrophe
Did you know that approximately 26.7% of water use comes from using our toilets? Also, 13.7 percent comes from leaks alone. An average family of four can use around 400 gallons of water per day. So in a year, that’s a staggering 146,000 gallons, which fills about 307 standard sized hot tubs!
Just by letting those faucets drip, or letting the toilet run could be increasing your water bill. According to the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency), fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners an average of about 10% on their water bills.
