Did you know that the average household wastes 30,000 gallons of water a year. If your sink drips once a second, that will waste over 3000 gallons of water per year (Courtesy of the EPA – see link above). The most common causes of leaks are faulty toilet flappers and worn out gaskets in sinks and hose bibs.
