Leaks can really waste a lot of water. Do this activity to find out exactly how much. Get your parents’ permission. In fact, they might even want to help you.
Turn on a cold water faucet in your home so it drips very slowly, and place a bucket under the drip. Set a timer for 1/2 hour. When the timer rings, turn off the faucet, then use a measuring cup to figure out how much water was wasted. (Pour the water into another bucket and use it for plants.)
