Water usage in your family’s home can be quite variable and is affected by many factors including the number of adults and children living in your home, the age of your children, your home’s size as well as the number of bathrooms. It is often difficult to measure water usage since the amount of water used for cooking, bathing, showering and cleaning varies in every home and depends on the water fixtures and appliances installed in your home. For example, we all know that teenagers tend to take longer showers and newborn babies create a lot of laundry! However, information from a number of reliable sources estimates that a family of four typically uses from about 150 gallons per day all the way up to 400 gallons per day! Several studies have shown that the average indoor water use in the U.S. is about 50 gallons per person per day.
