      That is 120 flushes for a buck.

      Flush away and avoid those clogs and backups.

      According to the U.S. Geological Survey, daily per capita water use in the U.S. is 98 gallons for domestic use, as of 2005 water census [USGS, 2009](link is external). Estimated average daily household water use (including outdoor) is 200 to 400 gallons for domestic use.

        Typical US home water use accounting is:
      • Showers - 19.5%
      • Washers - 22.1%
      • Toilets - 18%
      • Dishwashers - 1.5%
      • Baths - 2.7%
      • Leaks - 8.8%
      • Faucets - 23.9%
      • Other - 3.4%

How to Read Your Meter
Straight-Reading Meter

In the meter at the right, the reading is taken from the figures shown under the words CUBIC FEET. The meter reads 81,710, which is the total number of cubic feet of water recorded since the meter was installed. Because our charge is based on units of 100 cubic feet, the meter reader discards the last two numbers (the ones with the black background). So, this reading would actually be 817.

So, if by the time the we read your bills the next time you had used 1,200 cubic feet of water, the new reading would be 82,910 (81,710 plus 1,200). Again, we'd drop the last two numbers and your official reading would be 829. Your bill would be figured by subtracting the old number (817) from the new number (829). You would then be billed for 12 units.

It's important to note that the large sweep hand is used only for testing purposes.

 


 

What is CCF?

Different utilities use different units for measuring water use. The most common units are the CCF and the gallon. A CCF (centum cubic feet), also called an HCF (hundred cubic feet), represents one hundred cubic feet of water. The first "c" comes from the Latin word for hundred, "centum". This is the most common unit used by both water and natural gas utilities. But you may be more familiar with the other unit, the gallon. One CCF is equal to 748 gallons.

Practical Info:

  • 1 Flush = 1.5 gallons
  • you are getting 4.5 gals for 2.5 cents
  • Flush your toilet 6 times for one nickle
    that is 120 flushes for a buck. Flush away and avoid those clogs and backups.

     


     

    Average water use

    What does your usage mean? Well, the average American uses around 100 gallons per day per person in the household. That means a family of four would use around 12,000 gallons in a 30 day period. But usage varies a great deal across the country, mostly because of differences in weather patterns. For example, water use tends to be higher in drier areas of the country that rely more on irrigation for outdoor watering than in wetter parts of the country that can rely on more rainfall.
