How Much Water Do You Use in a Day?

You’d be surprised at the amount of water that you use during an average day at home. According to research provided by the Down the Drain Project, the average American uses between 80 to 100 gallons a day. That’s a lot. The more water you use in your home, the more damage you’re doing to the environment and the more money you’re wasting.

There are ways that you can reduce your water usage at home to ensure you’re doing what you can to protect the environment and your wallet. Here are a few helpful hints from our technicians at Snyder Heating and Air:

  • Reduce the length of time for your showers.
  • Reduce the amount of water you use in baths.
  • Check your swimming pools for leaks or evaporating water.
  • Check kitchen and bathroom for leaking faucets.
  • Use the washing machine and dishwasher only when it’s full.
  • Turn off running water when washing your face or brushing your teeth.
  • Water your garden as indicated by your local utility company.
