Excessive Water Use Mystery "Solved"

Jennifer and Jim kept getting HUGE water bills. They knew beyond a doubt that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and no matter how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued.


Although they could see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or problems: first the water meter, then outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, etc. -- all to no avail. .... the HUGE water bills continued.


One day, Jim was home sick and kept hearing water running downstairs. He got up from his sick bed to investigate, and stumbled onto the cause of such high water bills.


Apparently, what he discovered was happening all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would believe him, he taped this clip of “the problem”.
