So I recently got a water bill that was a little higher than expected... I got charged for using 40,000 gallons of water over an 8 month period of time. The kicker is that I haven't been using that water supply. So, after a day of digging I found a copper section of the pipe, with a small hole in it. I'm thinking if the water company would have just regularly checked my water usage, I could have fixed this a long time ago, and avoided paying such a high bill. So my question to you guys is, how long would it take for 40,000 gallons to leak out of the hole? Let’s assume that the hole has been same size the whole time. Here are the specs: Hole was 3/32 of an inch. Pipe is an inch in diameter. From what I've read, I believe the pressure in the pipe would be between 40 and 50 psi. 40,000g of water leaked. Thats about all the information I have, I'm just looking for a ball park estimate. Your help is much appreciated!
