This may come as a surprise to you, but it's estimated that the annual amount of water
leaking from homes across the nation is equivalent to the annual water usage of Los Angeles,
Chicago and Miami — combined. Worse, 10% of those homes leak 90 gallons a day or more.
Fortunately, most of these leaks can be easily fixed by homeowners themselves, simply by
tightening showerheads and faucets, replacing toilet flaps, replacing leaking water sprinkler
heads and, when appropriate, upgrading to more energy efficient washing appliances and fixtures.
What does this have to do with energy? More than you imagine. Letting your faucet run for five
minutes uses about as much energy as letting a 60-watt light bulb run for 14 hours. So take a
look at the project below and get started on saving water — and energy — today.
