our water co hands out little plastic rulers with their name on them.
on the back it has some neat facts. It says:
a dripping faucet can waste 3 gallons a day 1095 gal a year.
A hole in a pipe 1/16" at 60psi will leak out 25,000 per month over 800 gal
That is a hole the same width of a pin.
A 1/4" hole (about the size of a straw) will leak 394,000 gal per month.
over 500 gal per hour
