The Facts About Water Leaks

Because most water leaks around the home are minor and happen slowly over time, we often don’t consider fixing leaking plumbing fixtures a big priority. However, putting off plumbing repairs can come at a price. Consider these facts from the EPA.

  • 10 percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more each day
  • A leaky faucet dripping at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year
  • Minor water leaks account for more than 1 trillion gallons of wasted water each year and is equal to annual water use in 11 million homes.
  • A shower leaking at 10 drips per minute wastes more than 500 gallons per year

So what can you do to prevent water waste in the home?

  • First, check faucet washers and gaskets for wear and replace them as needed.
  • If toilets are leaking, have them repaired.
  • If you’re replacing an old toilet, water heater or other plumbing appliance or fixture, choose a model with a WaterSense rating.
