I have a hot water leak that loses about 20 Gal per Hour. I am wondering if someone knows roughly how much money this is losing me per hr (or day).
A ballpark number is fine, I'm trying to convince the landlord that it's losing more money than they claim.
In my city, according to their chart, you would pay $3.01 per 1000 gallons (5001-10000 gallon range).
20GPH = 480 gallons/day
480gpd x 28 days (4 wks) = 13440 gallons
13.44 x $3.01 = 40.4544
You would be spending ~ $40/month for just the water.
Then you need to figure out wasted electricity.
20 gallon/hour is a pretty sizable loss.....your landlord is not concerned with this???
Check your lease and what rights are afforded to you as a renter based on your location (State/County/City or even Community regulations).
