I wrote a few months ago about how I had noticed that our water bill was out of control. It made no sense since I knew we had not increased our consumption. Joe looked around and found that our garden hose was leaking like a mo fo. He shut off the water until it was spring and we could fix it. We also found that 2 of our toilets were leaking. He fixed those and we were just waiting for the next full bill to come to see how much of an impact these changes made.
January - 12 m3 (2009), 14 m3 (2010), 20 m3 (2011)
February - 10 m3 (2009), 9 m3 (2010), 17m3 (2011)
March - 10 m3 (2009), 9 m3 (2010), 21 m3 (2011)
April - 10 m3 (2009), 11 m3 (2010), 8 m3 (2011)
May - 15 m3 (2009), 10 m3 (2010), 11 m3 (2011)
I can not believe the amount of water being wasted by these 2 simple things. I just wish that I had caught it earlier.
Does anyone actually watch their consumption this closely monthly? If you don't do you think you might start?
