Average single home water consumption

If water consumption is low, there is less scope for savings.

Fig. 1 Average water consumption in a single home.


The figure above is based on the following formula (Gram-Hanssen 2005):

Annual water consumption = 52 cubic meters + (no. of people * 26 cubic metres/person)

Example: no. of people = 2

Annual water consumption (cbm) = 52 + (2 * 26) 
                        = 52 + 52 
                        = 104


In some scenarios it is simpler to use the formula rather than reading the figure. The results are rough estimates, as the values can vary significantly from person to person.
