In a new report, the United Nations is projecting that 5 billion people could suffer water shortages by 2050 due to climate change, increased demand and polluted supplies.
To help save valuable water and money all year long, intelligent-water industry leader Phyn conducted a national study. Key takeaways include:
- 10% of homes had leaks resulting from a faulty toilet flapper
- Toilet flapper leaks waste 1,200 gallons of water per day
- This can add up to 36,000 gallons of water wasted every month (that’s more than 945 loads of laundry)!!
With rising water costs, a leaky toilet could add anywhere from $248 in Dallas, $182 in New York to more than $400 on your water bill every month in cities like LA and SF.
Toilet flushing is one of the highest uses of water in the average home. Replacing a $10 faulty toilet flapper is an easy fix for homeowners to help conserve water and save money. Check out Phyn’s #Flappergate infographic below and download here.
