Water Usage -Per Person

When a customer receives a high bill reflecting increased water usage, assistance can be provided by discussing how excessive water can be used when guests are visiting, teenagers take long showers, watering lawns or shrubs, filling the swimming pool, renovation work at the property, or malfunctioning plumbing fixtures or service lines.

Historically, our residential customer water usage patterns have indicated that normal water consumption increases as follows:
Each Person = 70 to 80 gallons per day (g.p.d.)

 

# of People g.p.d. Total Yield in gallons
1 80  x 30 days = 2,100 to 2,400 monthly
2 140-160  x 90 days = 12,600 to 14,400 quarterly
 x 30 days = 4,200 to 4,800 monthly
3 210-240  x 90 days = 18,900 to 21,600 quarterly
 x 30 days = 6,600 to 7,200 monthly
4 280-320  x 90 days = 25,200 to 28,800 quarterly
 x 30 days = 8,400 to 9,900 monthly
5 350-400  x 90 days = 31,500 to 36,000 quarterly
 x 30 days = 10,500 to 12,000 monthly

 

Aqua offers appointments to its residential customers for an experienced High-Consumption Inspector to examine their properties and help pinpoint sources of increased water usage.  These appointments are available Monday through Friday and involves no fee to our customers.  A Hi-C Inspection is generally made if the customer received a high bill, claims no changes in daily routine and questions the cause of increased water usage.
