SERVPRO of Mercer County challenges you to some water damage trivia! How many questions can you honestly say you knew before reading this blog? As they say, knowledge is power. 

Did you know?

A 1/4-inch supply line from the Ice Maker, with normal household pressure, can pump 1/2 to 1 gallon of water per minute.  That is 700-1,400 gallons of water running through the kitchen in a 24-hour period.

Did you know?

A 3/8-inch supply line to a toilet can pump 2 to 3 gallons of water per minute with normal household pressure.  In a 24-hour period, that could be 3,000-4,000 gallons of water flowing through the home.  Hopefully not an upstairs toilet!

Did you know?

A 5/8-inch hose from a washing machine can pump 10-12 gallons per minute, or 14,000-17,000 gallons in a 24-hour period.  That is the size of an 18'x4' round swimming pool.

Did you know?

A faucet leaking at the rate of one drip per second can waste over 3,000 dollars in one year.

Did you know?

93% of water damage is preventable. 40% of homeowners have experienced water loss. 20% of all insurance claims are water related.
