*$300 a month from one running toilet?! Yes, it’s hard to believe. Here's the math:
Businesses pay, on average, 2 cents per gallon for water (for the fresh water coming in, plus processing the waste water that goes down the drain).
A toilet that leaks 500 gallons per day is very common, and it can be even more!
10 dollars per day is how much you’re paying for a running toilet (2 cents x 500 gallons per day).
$10 per day x 30 days = $300 per month
