Conserving water is extremely important for you to be able to save money on plumbing. Thus, here are seven facts you need to know about water leaks in order for you to avoid them:


  1. Water leaks in an average household account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted annually. This is equivalent to the amount required for your water tap to supply to your washing machine for 270 loads of laundry.
  2. 1 trillion gallons of water are wasted nationwide due to household plumbing leaks. That’s about the same amount of water used by more than 11 million homes yearly.
  3. Around ten percent of homes lose 90 gallons or more of water daily due to plumbing leaks.


  1. A leaking tap which drips at a rate of one drip per second causes 3,000 gallons of water to be wasted yearly. This is equal to how much water is used by a shower tap for more than 180 showers.
  2. Repairing minor water leaks such as a small pipe leak can enable homeowners to save around 10 percent in water bills.


  1. A shower leak which occurs at a rate of 10 drips per minute causes more than 500 gallons of water to be wasted yearly. This is equal to the amount needed by a kitchen sink tap to wash 60 loads of dishes in a dishwasher.


  1. An irrigation system which contains a leak measuring 1/32nd inches in diameter (the same size of a dime) wastes around 6,300 gallons of water in a month. This is more than the amount of water lost by a toilet bowl leak and water heater leak
