  • How Much Water Are Those Leaks Wasting? Find Out With the Water Leak Calculator
    While that steady dripping may seem like a just a minor annoyance, it could be costing you more than think. The most common water leaks found in the home are leaking faucets and shower heads. As washers and seals inside plumbing fixtures deteriorate, they begin to leak and should be replaced. So how much do a few water drips around the home cost?

    • The average household's leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
    • Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons annually nationwide. That's equal to the annual household water use of more than 11 million homes.
    • Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
