Did you know that a burst pipe can cause a significant amount of water to spill into your home or building in minutes?
This chart illustrates the average water flow rates based on typical municipal water lines. Based on these average flows, here are some examples of how quickly water loss can occur:
– A 24-foot above-ground round pool, 5 feet deep, contains roughly 16,000 gallons of water. If the typical two-inch pipe for sprinklers breaks – that pool would fill in about 20 minutes.
– If a standard half-inch pipe breaks and no one is home, in just a few hours, up to 10,000 gallons of water can be spilled.
-A single leak in the toilet supply line, which flows at 2-3 gallons per minute, can lose up to 3,000-4,000 gallons daily.
– A washing machine hose can leak up to 10-12 gallons per minute, causing the loss of more than 12,000 gallons in 24 hours.
Regardless of where the pipe burst occurs, the effects can be devastating and result in thousands of gallons of water loss. Eddy Solutions‘ innovative technology protects your home or building from costly water damage.
