Considering that a miniature size hole at least 3mm could result in the lost of thousands of liters of water a day, just imagine how much you’re losing in a month or annually, then calculate the costs.

This becomes a serious issue for commercial businesses, however what if this happens to occur in schools, hospitals or hotels where consumers are using large quantities of water every day, now it poses a serious health danger. How can this problem be prevented or solved?
