In some cases it has been found that leakage was the main cause for the increased size of the bills. In this connection It may be well to note how easy it is to waste water if there are any leaking faucets. Just look at the following figures: One Drop Per Second 1 Minute Loss is 1-10 Ounce. 1 Hour, Loss is 6 Ounces 1 Day, Loss is 1 Gallon & 1 Pint 1 Week, Loss is 8 Gallons 1 Month, Loss is 34 Gallons Two Drops Per Second 1 Minute, Loss is 1-3 Ounce 1 Hour, Loss is 20 Ounces 1 Day, Loss is 3-2-3 Gallons 1 Week, Loss is 26 Gallons 1 Month, Loss is 2 Barrels Drop Breaking to Stream 1 Minute, Loss is 2 Ounces 1 Hour, Loss is 1 Gallon 1 Day, Loss is 24 Gallons 1 Week, Loss is 3~ Barrels 1 Month, Loss is 14 Barrels THI~ CATALINA |SL.ANDER GAME FISH OF CATALINA Yellowtail (Seriola dorsalis).
