Fix That Drip

Next time you fill your cup with water, think about this:

  • We each use about 100 gallons of water per day, which fills about 1,600 glasses.
  • The consumption of household water has increased by 200 percent since the 50’s, even though the population has grown by only 90 percent. As a result, many states are expected to face water shortages.
  • Reducing the flow of water leaving our household is as easy as fixing a leaky faucet or toilet; a dripping faucet can waste up to 74 gallons a day, and a leaking toilet up to 200 gallons a day.
  • Repairing a leaky toilet can save $30 a year, which may not sound like much, but that is equivalent to about 73,000 gallons.
