It’s difficult to measure the true cost of a leak, but this chart gives you a good idea of the real expense when sinks and toilets and showers are allowed to continue with even a small leak. It’s definitely worth the time and effort to make the repair.
The constant drip from a leaky faucet is not just annoying; it’s also a waste of a precious natural resource and a drain on your wallet. Even the smallest leak wastes several gallons per day, which is a pretty good reason why it should not be ignored. When you fix a leak, even a seemingly small leak, you’ll save money and help protect the environment. The fix is usually simple and inexpensive, too.
