What is the average water consumption for my home?

There are many factors that go into determining what the average consumption should be, so it is difficult to give an average amount for a residential home. Some factors include household size, if guests are visiting, if you have filled or are maintaining a pool or hot tub, or if you irrigate or water your lawn. A good rule of thumb is approximately 6,000 gallons per person per quarter.
