Ever Wonder About Water?
Water, as they say, is life. But it might shock you just how much you use per day. According to the EPA, the average American uses 86 gallons per day – and the average household uses a whopping 300!
Now you might be curious where all this water goes!
But 30% goes right into the ground – it costs a pretty penny to keep that lawn green all year around! The next biggest culprit is your toilet, followed by your bath or shower.
Unfortunately, another 12% of your daily water use is leak-related. That’s where Waldman comes in! Our plumbing experts will find and fix your leaky pipes and save you about 10 gallons every day!
