Fun Fact Friday: Using Water in Numbers

Home / News / Fun Fact Friday: Using Water in Numbers

Hey there Glen Summit Spring Water fans, and welcome to our newest feature: Fun Fact Friday!  Every Friday, we will write a different fact about water, and tell you a little about it.  

Join us today, as we give you a quick fact about how much water you use on a daily basis!

We need water to survive—there’s no doubt about that—but we also need water to do a plethora of other tasks, ranging from cooking to using the bathroom.  But how much water do we run through in the average day?  The number may surprise you.

Typically, the average American will use about 100 gallons of water per day.  This water not only emcompasses drinking water, but also water used for brushing teeth, bathing, and cooking.  However, there are multiple ways to reduce this number that will only take a simple change in your daily routine.

For example, turning the faucet off when brushing your teeth can save 4 gallons of water right there, since the average faucet pours out at about 2 gallons per minute.  In addition, by opting for a shower instead of a bath, you can save upwards of 20-40 gallons right there.  Conserving water does not have to be a challenge, but something that we all take part in, in order to protect this finite resource on our planet.   

Thank you for joining us for this edition of Fun Fact Friday, and be sure to check back next week for another fact!

Have a great weekend!
