How Detecting & Repairing Water Leaks Can Save You Money

Have you ever tried going an entire day without using any water? Take the challenge, it's practically impossible! We use water from the time we wake up till we go back to bed, from the kitchen and bathroom, brushing our teeth, washing hands, taking a shower, flushing the toilet, coffee, dinner, and washing the dishes. Most of us just don’t realize how much water we use on a daily basis. 

The Untied States Geological Survey estimates each person uses about 80 to 100 gallons of water every day. That’s a lot of water!
