A tiny drip goes a long way!

"Oh, it's just a slow drip. I'll deal with it later." Have you ever said anything like that about a leaky faucet? I know I have! But did you know that a tiny dripping leak consumes 15 gallons a day, or 450 gallons in a month? And if you have a break in a water line you could lose a whole lot more. Check these numbers out:

a hole 1/32" will lose 6,000 gallons a month

a hole 1/16" will lose 25,000 gallons a month

a hole 1/8" will lose 100,000 gallons a month

a hole 1/4" will lose 400,000 gallons a month

So besides potentially causing all kinds of damage to your home or yard, leaks can be very expensive. If you suspect you have a leak, get it checked out sooner rather than later. You won't regret it!
