I have a faucet that leaks. How much water does it waste per day?

One leaking faucet may not seem like a big deal. However, one small drip drips 60 times per minute and that translates into 86,400 drips per day.

86,400 drips equals 5 gallons per water per day. If this was bottled water which costs upward of $5 per gallon you would be wasting $25 per day or a whopping $750 per month.

Granted tap water costs much less. However, this illustration is to show you how wasteful one dripping faucet can be.
