Interesting Facts About Water, In Relation to Water Damage

7/13/2020 (Permalink)

Water. We don’t spend much time thinking about it on a day to day basis...until it causes some major damage. There are a ton of interesting facts regarding water in general, but we want to share some that can be linked to water damage. All of the facts below are courtesy of https://www.espwaterproducts.com/water-facts/.

  • A small drip from a faucet can waste as much as 34 gallons of water a day.

  • Every day, six billion gallons of treated water is lost due to leaking pipes in the U.S.

  • There are an estimated 240,000 water main breaks per year in the U.S., wasting over two trillion gallons of treated drinking water.

  • More than half of the water used in a home is used in the bathroom.

  • The aging infrastructure in the U.S. causes a water main break every two minutes.

As you can see, even though we don’t think about water all the time, it has a major impact on society as a whole.
