The Problem of Wasted Water in the US
Did you know that homeowners in the United States waste up to a trillion gallons of water each year because of leaky toilets and kitchen faucets? Since it's hard to imagine what a trillion gallons water looks like, picture this: About 40 million swimming pools or 24 billion bathtubs full of water are lost each year in the US due to water waste. That's how much water is literally going down the drain in this country! This is due to a number of factors, including toilets that continuously run and faucets that continuously drip but never get fixed. How can we cluelessly waste that much water!?
Add together the numbers and the country's population statistics, and we've wasted enough water to supply 11 million homes for one year. Residents don't understand the magnitude of the problem until it's too late. Did you know that a continuously running toilet can waste literally thousands of gallons of water per day? This can potentially increase your water bill by hundreds or even thousands of dollars annually.
How to Check Leaky Faucets and Toilets
Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to make sure you're not wasting water at home. One of the most common ways that water is lost is in the toilet. Particularly, the round rubber disc in the of the back of the toilet (the flapper) is the device that becomes warped and deformed over time due to the chlorine in the municipal water supply. When this happens, water is then able to slip by the seal causing there to be water loss. A common way to identify this is if the toilet ever kicks on when nobody is using the bathroom.
Another simple way to check for leaks in the house is by going to the faucets and going to the bathtub and shower valves to inspect and make sure they're not dripping. If the bottom of the tub or the spout is wet, that is a sign your losing water.
