A 2016 study on residential end uses of water reports that US homes waste about 12 percent—over 775 billion gallons—of the water they receive annually. This study has since prompted initiatives for natural resources conservation to begin urging residents to take pragmatic steps toward reducing water waste, especially from plumbing leaks.
End this leak
Typically, the average water consumption rate in the US is 80 to 100 gallons per person per day. So, if your water bills break that ceiling, chances are high there is a leak in your home, advises Expert Plumbing, Heating, Air and Electrical in Lehi. If you have not checked to your worn-out toilet flappers, showerheads, sink, tub faucets, and your irrigation system, do not be quick to conclude that the leaks are just from loose plumbing fixtures.
There are smart leak detection systems in the market today, but that is not enough to manage this situation that is costing the public billions of money. You need a system that catches the leaks in real time, and that comes with automatic water shut-off features to cut water supply to your home to prevent further leakage.
If the leak detection system you use does not stop flagged leaks automatically, it is not efficient enough to save you the amount of water you lose to leakage.
