How Much Water Do You Use in a Day? The Answer May Surprise You [VIDEO]

Water is one of those things we take for granted, we just turn on the faucet and let it fly, not much to think about. Unless the hot water is all used up, or the water is a weird color, then you pay attention. :) But do you ever think how much water you actually use?

We have two teenagers and two adults, so between the 4 of us it is a lot of showers, faucets running, laundry and toilet flushing. I cringe thinking about how much we use. Some people adhere to the If it’s yellow let it mellow if it’s brown flush it down theory….but not me. I think that is kind of gross, but maybe that is just me.

Check out some of these statistics though: 1 Gallon to brush your teeth, 20 gallons to run your dishwasher and 40 gallons for one load of wash! Wow, makes me think, check out the video below for even more facts.
