Although it may not seem like a big deal, dripping faucets or running toilets can really impact a homeowner’s water bill, and our precious environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, an average household leak can account for almost 10,000 gallons of water wasted per year. Surprisingly, ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
Not only is water wasted, but leaks can also cause physical damages to your home. An unchecked leak can cause deteriorated caulk or grout, which in turn can cause even greater damage to floorboards and ceilings. Letting a faucet continuously leak can even cause damage to your sink, depending on the quality of your water. Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves.
