The 90-Day Plan: DAY 28

The 90 Day Plan - 90 Ways in 90 Days

The 90 Day Plan: Day 28 

What would you do if someone were stealing from you? You may be stealing from yourself. IDENTIFY and REPAIR LEAKES in your home to prevent your household from losing money. One faucet can leak about 20 gallons per day and one toilet can leak about 50 gallons per day; over one month, that adds up to a lot of stolen water—don't forget to check for leaks in your basement and outside.

For More Information:

Challenge: Municipalities that provide water lose, on average, 10-20% of water to leaks in the system. Call your water district and ask, how much water they are losing to leakage? Are they doing anything to perform infrastructure repair?
