Water Use, Loss & Conservation

Knowing the facts about water usage and loss can help you understand the best way to conserve water and money.

Cost of Water Loss

The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year. You are paying a minimum of $726 a year for that lost water. Save water and money by knowing the water usage and loss at your home.

For approximately $20, the average homeowner can install two low-flow shower-heads, place a toilet dam in the toilet tank, install low-flow aerators on faucets, and repair dripping faucets and leaking toilets. This could save 10,000 to more than 25,000 gallons of water per year for a family of four and would pay for itself in less than a year.
