    Assuming there are 90840 drops in a gallon (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_d..._in_one_gallon)

    ((60/2.5)*60*24*365)/90840

    60 seconds/2.5 seconds/drop = 24 drops/minute
    24 drops/minute * 60 minutes /hour * 24 hours/day * 365 days/year = 12614400 drops
    12614400 drops / 90840 = 138.863

    Edit: Using another definition of drop (1/20 tsp), then you only have 15360 drops/gallon, in which case it works out to 821 gallons a year.

      934.40 gallons

      960.00 gallons

      1,023.75 gallons

      Because drops are not uniform, you will get a different answer depending on the drip of the drop and the chemistry of the water.

          Am I the only one wondering why a GC is quizzing us? That's like me testing Kevin on welding. I could see if Mark or NHmaster was testing us. Just an observation.

              I know you're just having a good time and no harm was intended but I still saw the irony. BTW, only 1 pink shirt but it used to be white so it doesn't count.

                I believe he was offering you a childs "UP" shirt from Pixar. I'm not sure your son would care for pink though.
