Do leaky faucets cost any significant amount of money a year? Mine drips steady but not a flow in my tub
>>
In a word, yes. Water wasted = rate x time. Even a tiny rate matters when time is infinite. Replace your cartridge.

Or, if its old school, your seals.

It depends on the price and availability of water.

>significant amount of money
depends, if it is just dripping a tiny bit, it will be a meaningless amount of money i.e. if it fills a bucket only after 1 month or so, you are talking about a very tiny amount of extra water over what you use normally

legit I waste water all the time in my house, because I know A its going to a water treatment plant anyway, and B fucking water people never actually check the meters, and we've got high-tech digital ground meters now that all they gotta do is drive by and collect everyone's readings..

its been like 5 years straight now, that my water bill has been like 5 dollars.. its actually kinda comical. wish I had a sprinkler system to really jack up the free water gains... PS I live somewhere were fresh water is legit everywhere...

bottle them up and sell them
???
profit

If I open my faucet just a tiny bit the water meter doesn't even turn.

Significant? Dunno. Put a cup/bucket/whatever under the faucet in question and wait for exactly an hour/day/unit of time. Measure volume. Convert into gallons/liters/unit of measurement your water bill says. Plug into a spreadsheet. Do teh maths. PROFIT.

It sounds kinda obvious (blatantly obvious), but only YOU can figure out if it's a "significant amount".
