For  Your Information:
FYI
 Unfortunately, small leaks do not always come to the surface. Either they are absorbed into the soil, 
or they flow in to sewer or septic systems, where their flow may not be noticed. As can been seen from 
the table below, a small leak can pass a surprisingly large amount of water over a period of time. 
A few small leaks can add up to millions of gallons of wasted water. Water loss as a result of a leak 
with a ¼” diameter can mean a loss of 14,952 gallons per day.

A forgotten water hose, even for a short period of time, could easily increase your water consumption 
over that of a monthly average. Toilet tank mechanism malfunctions are a common occurrence, and in a 
short time would use a significant amount of water.
