How Much Household Water Use Is Normal?

The national average for usage per person per month is 1,500 gallons each.  Multiply that by the number of people in your household to get an average of what you should be using.  You have access to your meter in your basement so we strongly recommend monitoring it for usage.  Monitoring your usage on a daily basis might help identify some areas where usage can be reduced.  Also check the water level in the tanks of the toilets – make sure it is at least an inch below the overflow tube.  And please fix any toilet that is running.  If you can hear a toilet running it is similar to leaving a faucet run. The most common cause of elevated usage is a running toilet.
