#### Formula:

Dripsday = 1440 * a * b * c Litersday = Dripsday / 4000 Gallonsday = Dripsday / 3.785 Gallonsyear = Gallonsday * 365 Where, a = Number of drips per minute b = Number of faucets in each home c = Number of homes

### Example:

Calculate drips per day, liters per day, Gallons per day, Gallons per year for the number of drips per minute as 5, number of faucets in each home as 4 and number of homes as 3.

#### Solution:

Drips Per Day = 1440 x 5 x 4 x 3
= 86400
Liters Per Day = 86400 / 4000
= 21.6
Gallons (US) Per Day = 86400 / 3.785
= 5.7067
Gallons (US) Per Year = 86400 x 365
