Why doesn’t water run out?

I’m talking about water that are used in houses. Where does the water come from? Why don’t we run out?

    Most (local) water comes from wells, underground rivers and water treatment plants.

    Lakes and reservoirs are filled by rain and snow run-off.

    The planet has a closed ecosystem.  There has always been the same amount of water on it since the beginning of time.  All water evaporates and forms clouds.  The clouds and atmosphere filter out the salt (from ocean water) and other natural properties of the water as well as pollutants before it rains.  Which refills the rivers and lakes, etc.
