How much water is wasted with “a slow drip” per day/ month/ year?

Slow drips can turn into gallons of water! The EPA estimates that more than one trillion gallons of water leak from our homes nationwide each year. That’s equal to over 3,000 gallons for every person in the United States. Even something as small as a slow drip can add up quickly and go unnoticed before it’s to late and the damage is already done.

We should consider not only the cost of wasted water and energy when we are making the decision to fix a leak but also the true value of water as one of our most valued natural resources.
