The Big Leak You'll Never Notice (Tub Spouts)

Fixing The Leak On Your Feet

Tub spouts have a way of leaking you probably never knew about.  After all, how can you tell if your feet are too wet when you’re taking a shower?

There is a good chance your tub spout leaks while you’re showering.  And if that leak doesn’t exist yet, it will most likely show up over time. In fact, the older the tub spout, the leakier it becomes.

The culprit is the design of your tub spout’s diverter – you know, that thingy you push or pull to send hot water to your shower head. Every time it's used the seal preventing water from exiting the tub spout while your showering becomes a little weaker. After a few years, water starts to drip, drip, drip. Over time, it begins to pour.

Leaking Tub Spouts Waste 5 gallons HOT WATER Per Shower

Leaking tub spout diverters are a big deal. Research by Taitem Engineering in a study including over 120 apartments and houses found that 34% of all tub spout diverters leaked a meaningful amount. The largest leak was 3.0 gpm and the average of all leaks was .8 gpm. In other words 1/3 of tub spouts leaked while showers were being taken, and they did so at a rate of nearly a gallon a minute. Consider a typical showering time of 6 minutes, and your leaky tub spout is wasting nearly 5 gallons of hot water per shower!

Through Engineering and Innovation... Ours won't
Evolve’s Auto Diverting Tub Spout System is uniquely engineered to prevent tub spout diverter leaks – today, and in the future. It does so by thermostatically preventing water from exiting the tub spout once it becomes hot. Not only does this save nearly 5 gallons of hot water per shower, it comes with the added benefit of automatically diverting hot water to your shower once it arrives.
