How much water does the average family use?
The average family of 4 uses approximately 5,400 gallons(comparable to 700 - 750 cubic feet) per month. This can vary considerably on your lifestyle. If you feel your water usage is too high, check for leaky faucets and toilets. A leaky faucet can waste 300 gallons of water a month and a leaky toilet can waste 6,500 gallons of water a month. Your sewer charges are based on your water usage. If you do find leaks in your home, fixing them can reduce both your water and sewer costs.
