Dripping taps in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry or outside our home is a common scenario most of us have encountered. While a dripping tap is an issue we know we should have repaired, making it a priority is often dismissed.
Have you ever considered the on-flow effect of having one, or several, dripping taps around your home? Read on to learn the importance of having dripping taps repaired and how doing so can save water, the environment and money including:
- How much water can a dripping tap waste?
- How does repairing dripping taps help to preserve our environment?
- How does repairing a dripping tap save you money?
How much water can a dripping tap waste?
The severity of a dripping tap and how many dripping taps you have around your home will determine just how much water you are wasting. A single tap that drips 10 times per minute can waste the equivalent of about 3 litres of water each day, 21 litres of water a week and over 90 litres a month. How much water is 90 litres? It’s equivalent to filling up 150 standard 600 ml water bottles. Over a year, the same dripping tap could waste over 1000 litres, that’s equivalent to filling 1800 standard 600ml water bottles.
How does fixing dripping taps help to preserve our environment?
Water is an essential resource. Our growing population means a greater demand on our water storages and our hotter, drier climate means less rainfall to fill our reservoirs. Water is precious and saving water helps to preserve our environment. There are many small things we can all do to help save water in our homes, one of them being having dripping taps repaired.
How does fixing a dripping tap save you money?
For most of us, water consumption is a utility we pay for the privilege of having. If you have noticed a spike in your water bill or your water costs continually rise despite being conscious of your water usage, repairing dripping taps is recommended. Reducing your water usage will reduce your water bill, saving you money.
