Of course, a

low volume flusher saves nothing if it takes ages for a plumber to fix a

faulty toilet.

At my work, we had a toilet which was continuously flushing. In fact, it was shooting water down the drain faster than a normal flush would. We couldn't stop it because the office toilets was one of those types where everything but the seat is hidden behind the wall.

**It took 30 hours before a plumber arrived to fix it!**

Here is the maths behind that leaking toilet:

Let's say the average toilet flush is 5 litres and takes 5 secs to be completed. That means that 60 litres of water was being flushed down the drain every minute. Over the period of 30 hours, we lost 108,000 litres of water!

To put that in perspective: **108,000 litres of water is almost the amount of water that is consumed by a standard household of four people in a year!**

What a waste!
