By way of comparison, the average use in England is around 150lts/person/day,
which is 39.6 US gallons (conversion factor 3.785lts a gallon). There are
obviously a lot of eco-friendly people using a lot less than that - one house
I'm aware of that's running off rainwater is down to about 10 galls / person
What are you doing with the stuff ?? I don't think we're inherently smellier
people walking around in dirtier clothes over here ( no replies on this
The maximum w.c. flush in England is now 7.5lts (2galls), and there's
pressure to allow use of cisterns with less than 1gall flush ( used
sucessfully in Scandinavia).
The latest washing machines (good ones) use about 55lts (14.5galls) for a
full wash cycle.
