How much water does a leaky shower waste per year?
This is a common problem in most Australian households. A leaky shower is a constant waste of water which we know is not only very expensive, but also very valuable from an ecological standpoint.
In most cases these problems are overlooked unless they represent a significant amount of money wasted per day. Many people ignores small leaks and only call an expert when the leak is incontrollable and way harder to be repaired.
If you have a leaky shower you must know that you are letting a lot of water go to waste, even if it is a small leak. The wisest decision you can make is to call the experts, here at Elite Shower Repairs we will take care of any problem you have in your shower, we are professionals with wide experience in re-tiling, sealing, waterproofing and any other type of services required to make your shower a clean and optimal place for you.
Calculating the costs of a leaky shower
As it was mentioned before, the extra expenses caused by a leak in your shower will depend on how big this leak is. For instance, a shower head that leaks an average of 10 drips per minute, will lose at least 7.5 litres of water every day (now that you have pictured 2 gallon bottles being wasted every day you probably do not think this is a small problem anymore). According to this calculation, a leaky shower that drips 10 times per minute will waster around 3,700 litres of water per year.
Why is it so important to stop these leaks? Well, once water drips out and away from your house it is treated as sewage by the water company. Which means a lot of money being spent in unnecessary treatment, usually done by adding disinfectants and other substances required for water cleaning, making it an expensive process that we can stop if we fix our leaky shower.
Also, having your shower covered by water the entire day is not a good idea. Increasing dampness and moisture at any area of the house will also increase the chances of mould to appear on walls and ceilings.
