Residential Application: 3-person home, 2000 sq ft, 2 showers, 2 toilets, 1 washing machine, 1 garden/pool.


Assumptions for a Family of 3 people:

  • Average shower time of 10 minutes
  • Flow of shower head: 2.5 USGPM x 10 minutes = 25 gallons of water
  • Number of showers per day: 3 showers/day x 25 gallons/shower = 75 gallons/day
  • Number of flushes/person/days: 4 flushes x 3 people = 12 flushes
  • Low flow toilets: 2 gallons per flush; 2 gallons x 12 flushes = 24 gallons of water/day
  • Loading washing machine: 15 gallons per load x 2 load per day = 30 gallons of water/day
