to the way they use water... this calculator is just for fun!

Could be saving
of water per year
By doing some of the following:
...and getting friends and family to save water too!
Our calculations are based on the following averages:
Average shower a week:
9 minutes / 15 litres per minute = 135 litres
Average 4 minute shower a week:
Saving 5 minutes = 75 litres saved each time
Full bath: 80 litres
Half bath: 40 litres saved
Turning the tap off when brushing teeth:
Average brushing for 2 minutes: 12 litres saved
Keeping a jug of water in the fridge:
Recommendation to drink an average of 7 glasses a day
Each time we leave the tap on we could waste 2 litres
Without a jug: 7x2 = 14 litres wasted
Filling a jug: no waste = 14 litres saved
Dual flush toilet:
Average toilet flush: 5 times a day
Average dual flush toilet use: 4-6 litres
Calculation shows the difference saved between the largest amount which could be used per day (5 x 6 litre full flushes) versus the input use (combination of daily short 4 litre flush and remaining long 6 litre flushes out of an average 5 flushes per day).
