My dripping faucet was costing me $118 dollars a year! Time to fix it! A dripping faucet costs money every minute of the day…but how much? My dripping shower was being neglected (honesty is the best policy)…partly because I’ve wanted to measure it and make a video. This video illustrates what I found and details the math of how I figured out the dollar amount hitting my wallet. It was more than I thought! Yikes! I’m making time to fix this faucet.
