Facts:

120 drops = 5mL

1 gallon = 3785 mL

* 90840 Drops in 1 Gallon

If a faucet dripped once a second how many gallons of water would it waste?

It would waste 347 Gallons of water a year!

Facts:

1 year ~ 31,536,000 seconds

24 drops in 1 mL

1 gallon/3785 mL X (1 mL/24 drops) X (1 drop/ 1 s) X (31,536,000 s/ 1 year) = 347.1598415 gallons / year
